Leslie William Holden



Pay Respect

It is with sadness that we report the passing of Glider Pilot Regiment Veteran, Sergeant Leslie William Holden (26 Dec 25 – 29 Dec 19). There is little information on him but we know that he took part in the Normandy invasion on Operation Mallard as a Hamilcar co-pilot with Staff Sergeant Sanders. He is also believed to have been involved in the Operation Market Garden in Sep 44 and on Operation Molten in Oct 44. The latter was an operation to ferry gliders to Italy.
We have no information about his funeral.
