WW1 Veteran: David Louis Clemetson, 2019. JACooke

  • Jamaican born, David Louis Clemetson became one of the first Black soldiers promoted to Officer, serving Britain during WW1. Clemetson, from a wealthy family was among the first to volunteer to support Britain. In 1914, Military Law effectively barred “any negro or person of colour” from holding rank above Sergeant. With his “dusky complexion” he was asked if he was of pure European descent, to which he answered No! His grandfather had been a slave in Jamaica.
