      Walter Tull answered on 8 Oct 2022:

      He had different jobs, starting as the lowest rank, effectively as a rifleman, then moving through the ranks as a non-commissioned officer within his infantry battalion. He then trained as an officer and moved to a different battalion to command a platoon of 50 riflemen.
