Do you think Newark's second world war heroes should have a street named after them? ­— Advertiser's poll of the week




The names of four wartime heroes have been submitted to have streets be named after them.

It is hoped the honour will be bestowed in a year when the 75th anniversary of the end of the second world war is celebrated.

A campaign to honour some of Newark’s heroes gained momentum following the funeral of Jim Auton, an RAF bomb aimer who dropped vital supplies to resistance fighters during the Warsaw uprising of 1944.

It has been suggested that streets could be named after Jim in both Warsaw and Newark, where Jim is buried next to the memorial to those who took part in the airbridge that he paid for.

In light of this, do you, the reader, think all of Newark's second world war heroes should have a street named after them?
