Walter Tull's scrapbook

Morgan, Michaela

The grandson of a slave and raised in an orphanage, Walter Tull was one of Tottenham Hotspur's star players and later became the first black officer in the British Army. His bravery and leadership in the First World War won him a recommendation for the Military Cross. He achieved recognition when black football players were virtually unknown and military law stopped non- Europeans from becoming officers
