War veteran post honour
A VICTORIA Cross winner from the First World War has had a postbox dedicated in his honour.
Royal Mail marked the heroism of late Sergeant Alfred Knight at Ypres in Belgium in 1917, because he worked as a Post Office clerk before he enlisted.
Natalie Frow, from Royal Mail, said: “Most men who left postal jobs had no military experience. It makes Sgt Knight truly heroic.”
The plaque is on a box in the street in Birmingham where Alfred lived.
