Details of talks given by Tim Coltman
My name is Tim Coltman and my presentation is based on the life of my great grandfather William Harold Coltman. William was involved in WW1 but because of his faith refused to fight and went as a stretcher bearer. As a result of his bravery and courage he was awarded the Victoria cross, Military medal and bar and Distinguished conduct medal and bar. He is now described as the highest decorated non commissioned officer of the British Army. The presentation which lasts for approx 45 mins and is totally free, traces the life of William Coltman and how he came to be awarded all of these medals.
