A naming ceremony was held to dedicate the street to Private Rawson earlier this month.
His mother Ann Williams told the Barking and Dagenham Post:
“I’m so proud that to have this new street named after Tony. It would have made him so happy. His friends are absolutely delighted as well. It’s so nice for them to have something permanent in Dagenham to remember him by.”
