WW1 Veteran: George Arthur Roberts, 2019. JACooke

  • Trinidadian born, George Roberts became known as the “Coconut Bomber” due to his proficiency as a battalion bomber serving Britain in WW1. Rumoured to be one of the first Black soldiers to enlist in the British Army, he was awarded several medals for his service. He became the first Black leading fireman for the London Fire Brigade and founded a branch of the Royal British Legion in Camberwell, campaigning tirelessly for ex-servicemen. Roberts played a crucial role in demanding equality for both Black men and women.
