We should remember Walter Tull because of his outstanding efforts in World War One which got him recommend for the Military cross. He led his men on dangerous missions behind enemy lines and return without loss or injury. He sacrificed his life for the British Government.
He was the first black man to become an officer because military law forbade man not of ‘pure European descent’. Walter Tull was also Britain’s first black professional football player.
He shows that you can achieve so much in one life time and it doesn’t matter about your differences.
