I can't find too much on this soldier either ... any help would be appreciated ! Lt John Holland, 7th Bn Leinster Regiment, from Athy, Co. Kildare, led his platoon of twenty-six bombers through their own barrage and destroyed many enemy positions. They captured over 50 prisoners. Only Holland and 5 of his men survived the assault. Holland was actually ill at the time and was hospitalized shortly after. He died in Tasmania in 1975.
