John Bradburne

The first British saint since the 16th century? Ex-public schoolboy known as 'God's vagabond' who fought in WW2 and cared for lepers in Zimbabwe before he was EXECUTED by Mugabe could finally be recognised

John Bradburne is set to become the first British saint in more than 400 years
He was killed during missionary work in Zimbabwe, then Rhodesia, in 1979
Before he died, he said that he had only three wishes — to help lepers, die a martyr and be buried in a habit of the Franciscan order
