A crowd-sourced tribute to thousands of people connected to the Battle of the Somme

Cemahl Tamumo-Mullin for Walter Tull

Dedicated to Walter Tull

by Cemahl Tamumo-Mullin

Organisation: St Monica's school

Walter Tull died at the age of 30. He sadly passed away on the 25th March 1918. I chose him because, like him I am mixed race and he was the first black man to be promoted to the rank of officer at the Somme. He is a very inspiring person because against all the odds he achieved such a high rank. His story makes me feel like anyone can do anything. R.I.P Walter Tull
