Battle of Bri­tain heroes hon­oured

Yorkshire Post - Property - - PROPERTY -

ROADS at Redrow’s Wheat­ley Chase de­vel­op­ment have been named af­ter lo­cal heroes Pilot Of­fi­cer Wal­ter Beau­mont, Sergeant Ge­of­frey Gar­side and Pilot Of­fi­cer Ken­neth Manger.

It fol­lows an ap­peal from Calderdale Coun­cil for ideas on how a per­ma­nent tribute could be paid to the air­men who fought in the Battle of Bri­tain.

The roads are Manger Gar­dens, Gar­side Drive and Beau­mont Chase, with an apart­ment build­ing named Wal­ter House. Coun John Hardy, Deputy Mayor of Calderdale, says: “Nam­ing the roads in hon­our of these men is not just a tribute to their ef­forts, but also serves as a last­ing mem­ory to all ser­vice­men in­volved.”
