Beckstone Primary School's petition
to posthumously award the Military Cross to Walter Tull
2nd Lieutenant Walter Tull was the first black infantry officer in the British Army and the first black
infantry officer to be recommended for a Military Cross, which he never received. We hope that this historical error
can be rectified and that 2nd Lieutenant Walter Tull can be awarded his Military Cross posthumously.
I, the undersigned, support the campaign for Walter Tull's Military Cross.
