Barking and Dagenham Council says it plans to name a third street after a local serviceman or woman who has died on active duty, after naming two other streets in this way.
On each occasion the council has consulted with bereaved families before deciding on the street name and offered them a role during the street naming ceremony.
Cllr Liam Smith, Leader of Barking and Dagenham Council, said:
“We are very proud as a Council to be able to remember our fallen soldiers in the way of naming a street after them. These streets will be permanent reminders to future generations of the ultimate sacrifice which these brave soldiers made for our country. These individuals are an absolute credit to Barking and Dagenham.”
