Walter Tull

Recommended Posts

Teachers and those teaching your children from home might be interested in a classroom activity I have produced on Walter Tull, the first Black combat officer in the British Army. I have also included material on his childhood (he was forced to live in an orphanage in Bethnal Green after the death of his parents) as well as his career as a professional footballer and his time in the British Army in the First World War. The subject is topical as on Wednesday it was announced that Tull will appear on the new £5 coin.
