About Charles Holland

Charles Holland was decorated by both the British and American Military for his bravery behind enemy lines during the Second World War.  He was also the man behind Amplifon.

Charles Holland was part of the Special Operations Executive (SOE) between 1943 and 1945 and courageously took part in espionage, sabotage, and reconnaissance missions in occupied Europe, working alongside local resistance groups.

He was later commissioned into the Royal Corps of Signals and became attached to an elite American-Canadian unit know was the Devil’s Brigade under the command of the US 5th Army, whose heroic deeds were dramatized in a 1968 film ‘The Devil’s Brigade’.  Charles Holland was awarded the MBE and the Military Cross – the third highest British decoration for bravery – for his remarkable acts of courage.  He was also awarded the Bronze Star by the United States Government in 1948.

After the war the courageous veteran dedicated his life to providing better hearing for people affected by the conflict and he subsequently launched Amplifon in 1950.  Amplifon has become a worldwide company specialising in providing the best in class hearing solutions and devices.
