Gypsy VC recognised

There was a Black History Month event in Sanctuary Buildings this month which will be opened by the Secretary of State and the Permanent Secretary and at which homage will be paid to Gypsy John (Jack) Cunningham  who won the VC in WW1.

I thought that the article below might be of interest in Black History Month. It is about Rab Howell.

I came across it after reading about the unveiling yesterday of a statue of  Arthur Wharton, the world’s first Black professional  footballer at the National Football Museum.
