As we mark the centenary of the start of the First World War, we need to recall the contribution of Black - African, African Caribbean and African American - people to the Allied war effort, and the tremendous sacrifices they made.

Perhaps more importantly, we need to recall the devastation the war caused to the African continent. When you see pictures of starving children in Africa, remember that this poverty and destitution partly had its origins in World War One.

There are many lessons we have yet to learn from the First World War.
