Ann Williams, the mother of Private Tony Rawson who was killed in Afghanistan, said that having a street named after him was a real source of pride.
When Tony Rawson Way was officially named, she said:
“It’s absolutely fantastic. It makes me feel really proud. It’s a lasting legacy to him and means a part of him will always be here.
“When the council approached me, I was absolutely delighted.....I know Tony would be over the moon. I bet he’s dancing up there right now.
“He loved history and knowing that his name will live on in the borough would make him very proud.”
