Charles Harry Coverdale who gained the victoria cross in the first world war was honoured in Old Trafford and at Trafford Council HQ yesterday October 4th.
Members of his family turned up and the mayor of Trafford outside a very nice building on Shrewsbury Street in Old Trafford called the Limelight, around fifty people gathered to honour with his family including photographers and members of the public.
A blue plaque was unveiled by a member of Charles family at the limelight building just after 11am.
Another tribute was paid in the gardens of Trafford Council HQ on Talbot Road in Stretford, where we saw some political figures that was sadly missing on Shrewsbury Street earlier.
It was a special tribute, with a bugler, and many statements being read out by the mayor and family members, a prayer was said and reefs laid around a stone with Charles name engraved.
