Honour Walter Tull

0 have signed. Let’s get to 100!

As many as 127 MPs have written to the Prime Minister calling for a posthumous Military Cross to be awarded to Walter Tull, the first black officer in the British Army and one of the first black professional footballers. 

Add your name to their ranks and call upon the Prime Minister to honour a brave, pioneering man who gave up a football career and ultimately his life in defence of our country.

The honour should recognise the context of institutional racism in which he and other men of colour served as soldiers.
