A local First World War hero who was awarded the most prestigious honour for bravery is set to be honoured with a blue plaque, a century after his act of gallantry.
Joseph Lister was awarded the Victoria Cross after risking his life to save his comrades as they came under fire at Passchendaele Ridge in Belgium, in October 1917. Joseph enlisted in the Lancashire Fusiliers and was posted to the 1st Battalion. In October 1917, the Battalion was in Belgium preparing to take part in the Third Battle of Ypres, what would become known as Passchendaele.
Just 30 years old at the time, Joseph secured the surrender of 100 soldiers, saving the lives of his fellow Fusilliers.
Now he is set to be remembered with a blue plaque at his former home on David Street, Reddish. A commemorative paving stone will also be installed nearby. More...
