I’ve just come across the story of Major Seth Kwabla Anthony, who was the first black African commissioned into the British Army, following his joining the GCTF in 1939.

I hope you enjoy reading the article as much as I have. It has certainly given me a good background insight into the number of Ghanaians who were volunteered / conscripted to fight in WW2, and where they fought.
