WW1 Veteran: Lionel Turpin, 2019. JACooke

  • Guyanese born Lionel Turpin, a merchant seaman enlisted when just 19 as a Rifleman to serve Britain in WW1. Turpin served with the British Expeditionary Force, in France, 1916, 1917 and 1918. He faced the usual challenges as a Black man being recruited to the forces, but those in charge at the York depot were prepared to turn a blind eye. Following his exemplary service, he was recognised as being very loyal to his King and country.
