WW1 Victoria Cross soldier's relatives sought

The relatives of a World War One soldier from the West Midlands, who was awarded the Victoria Cross, are being sought.

As part of the UK's commemorations of the Great War, the government is planning to honour all of the servicemen who were given the medal, including Harold John Colley, from Smethwick, who was awarded it posthumously.

Sandwell Council is looking for any of his relatives to come forward.
