However, Tull’s superiors demanded that he be promoted due to his ability and the way he distinguished himself in key battles. He was promoted no less than three times.
2nd Lieutenant Walter Daniel John Tull led his men on dangerous missions behind enemy lines and returned without loss or injury. For these acts of bravery, he was cited for his "gallantry and coolness" under fire by Major General Sir Sydney Lawford, his commanding officer and he was recommended for the Military Cross. That recommendation never reached the right military authorities.
Help us right this wrong to this extraordinary sporting and military hero so that he may be posthumously awarded the Military Cross.
