May we please enlist your help in our fund.

Many ex-servicemen from your area served with the Green Howards Regiment and this project will make great appeal to them.

CSM Stanley E Hollis was the only serviceman to be awarded the Victoria Cross on D-Day, June 6, 1944.

Sadly, his achievements have almost gone unrecognised in his home town of Middlesbrough consequently the Stanley E Hollis VC Memorial Fund has been established to rectify this oversight.

Stanley was a slightly shy, self-effacing family man, but nevertheless a man’s man and most definitely a soldier’s soldier.

He is still a legend in the history of the Green Howards Regiment. This memorial will ensure his everlasting stature and also that of his famous regiment.

For donations please refer to details on the website, or payment can be made by bank transfer to: Yorkshire Bank plc, Guisborough, sort code 05-04-46, The Stanley E Hollis VC Memorial Fund, account 44681498.
