South Staffordshire. 24 March 1918

Joseph Holloway was the son of George Holloway of 13 New Street, Old Hill. He enlisted in the South Staffords and was sent probably to the 2nd Battalion. In March 1918 they were aware of the German build-up for their great Spring offensives and were in reserve some five miles behind the front line facing St. Quentin. They heard the huge barrage of the 21st March and provided a counter-attack on the 24th. They were overwhelmed. Some were captured, some wounded and some killed, like Private Joseph Holloway. He was 20 years of age and is commemorated on the Arras Memorial and on the Blackheath and Halesowen Memorials.
