Our Veterans

The challenges faced by veterans, did not only come about through their war efforts. It started before, when signing up as volunteers to support Britain. Volunteering in itself was an issue for people of colour, in the same way, being recognised for their skills and achievements. Promotion to the rank of Officer was seldom offered to Black soldiers, and if it were, it would be as a result of you having to deny that you were of African descent.
