Every October during Black History Month, Britain celebrates the part played by black people in our national story.
In honour of Black History Month, we are celebrating some of the many black soldiers who have achieved great things and paved the way for future generations.
For Valour: Black VC Recipients
The Victoria Cross is the most prestigious award of the British honours system and has been awarded to several black service personnel since its creation in 1856.

Our charity is proud to work in partnership with the Royal Commonwealth Ex-Services League to support veterans like Wisdom, who served with the 82nd Division in Burma.
