Portraits: Walter Tull07-10-2020 | 15:03:52 | No Comments

During our ongoing art work – portraits of key historical figures – we have learned about Walter Tull.

Walter Tull was both a professional footballer player and a soldier during World War One.

Walter had to give up his career as a footballer to help out in the war, but he then became recognised as the first black officer to lead white British soldiers into battle.
