Memorial to CSM Stan Hollis VC Green Howards
Stan Hollis was the only man to win the VC on D-Day. He landed here with D Company of the 6th Battalion. Thinking that the original hut was a German pill box he fired the entire drum of his Lewis gun at it only to discover, as he put it, 'it was only a bloody tram stop'. Hollis survived the war. The Memorial on the renovated hut was unveiled on 8 June 2006 in the presence of Hollis' son, Brian.
