War Grave Wednesday - Leading Aircraftman Eric Stanley Holloway

 
"They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old.
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them".
 
 
 
Eric Stanley Holloway was born in Maidenhead in 1920 to Roland Percy Holloway and his wife Violet Katherine Thrift.
 
After the outbreak of war eric enlisted with the Royal Air Force, 42 Squadron.
 
Sadly on 20th July 1941 Eric was involved in a fatal car accident in Twford, just outside Reading.
