Trafford Veterans approached Tactical Coffee to see if we could produce a unique blend to celebrate the centenary of the passing of Sgt John Alker. 

John Alker was a soldier in World War 1. He served in the Manchester Regiment before being transferred to the Machine Gun Corps. He rose to the rank of Sergeant and was fortunate enough to survive the war.

John sadly died in February 1920, shortly after he returned from the war. His wife, Sabina Walker commissioned the building of ‘The John Alker Memorial Hall’ and the hall was completed in 1927.

Trafford Veterans use the hall to hold their Veteran Breakfast Club as well as other veteran community projects. More information can be found at Trafford Veterans  

About Trafford Veterans.

Trafford Veterans was formed in 2015 by two veterans from HM Armed Forces and Emergency Services. In the beginning, we attended local community events, to raise awareness and also visited groups to give short presentations on who we are and how we could help individuals within Trafford. 

Our first event took place in December 2016 when we held our very first Veterans Breakfast at The John Alker in Flixton. The event was a huge success and people travelled from various places to show their support for our new venture. From then on, it was decided that we would hold a Veterans Breakfast on a monthly basis on the third Saturday of the month.
