Hull Pals Memorial Post. PRIVATE STANLEY MARR 10/79. Born December 1892, the third of six children to Philip and Kate Marr of 13 Colenso Street, Hull, Stanley was a Solicitors Clerk by trade but rushed to answer the call of King and Country being among the first to sign up for the fledgling battalion on September 1st 1914. A member of C Company, Stanley trained at Hornsea, Beverley and Ripon throughout 1915 before shipping to Egypt in December of that year. After three months of searing heat the Pals were sent to the trenches of France in March 1916 and Stanley fought alongside his friends and comrades through the Somme and Oppy Wood and countless excursions into No-Mans Land on raids and patrols. He was killed in action on 12th April 1918 during the German Spring Offensive and his body was never recovered. His name is commemorated on the Ploegsteert Memorial. He was 25 years old.
