Train Stop dedicated to Stanley Hollis

On D-Day this building was a light train stop and was mistaken for a pill box and attacked by the Allied forces landing here on King Green Sector of Gold Beach.

The building is dedicated to the memory of CSM Stanley Hollis VC and the men of 6th and 7th Battalions of the Green Howards (Alexandra, Princess of Wales's Own Yorkshire Regiment) who landed here on D-Day 1944.

Hollis was the only person to be awarded the Victoria Cross for his actions on D-Day for firstly clearing a pillbox and trenches north of Ver-sur-Mer and for rescuing his comrades under fire in the village of Crépon.
