Orphaned football pioneer was British Army’s first black officer and died a hero

The Mirror says few people will know the name Walter Tull, the inspirational footballer who became a true hero in more ways than one.

Walter overcame adversity at every stage in his life then made the biggest sacrifice of all to defend his country.

Born in Folkestone, tragedy struck at a very young age when he lost his mother to breast cancer aged seven and then his dad passed away from heart disease just two years later.

After losing both his parents, Walter and his brother Edward found themselves in a precarious and vulnerable position before being taken in by an orphanage in Bethnal Green.
