Description:
Private Harold Brown. Queen's Royal West Surrey Regiment.
In 1914 there were at least 10,000 black Britons, many of African and West Indian heritage, fiercely loyal to their mother country. Despite being discouraged from serving in the British Army during the First World War, men managed to join all branches of the armed forces and black communities made a vital contribution, both on the front and at home. By 1918 it is estimated that the black population had trebled to 30,000, and after the war many black soldiers who had fought for Britain decided to make it their home. 'Black Poppies' explores the military and civilian wartime experiences of these men and of women, from the trenches to the music hall.
