tells the story of the contribution made by young Caribbean men and women during the Great War, 1914-1918. Although the work they did was mainly manual, some would say demeaning; it made a huge and significant contribution to winning the War. This powerful production draws on the life of Walter Tull - an incredible story of new ground broken, bravery, friendship and the horrors of life in the trenches during the War. While playing for Northampton Town football club, Tull joined up and arguably, became the first black combat officer to serve in the British army in the First World War.
