The John Baskeyfield VC Memorial.
Sergeant Baskeyfield, a native of the city of Stoke-on-Trent, was serving with the 2nd Battalion of the South Staffordshire Regiment at the Battle of Arhem in September 1944.
During the defence of Oosterbeek, he commanded a pair of anti-tank guns that destroyed several enemy tanks before the crews were killed. He took over the guns alone and continued to fire them at the advancing enemy tanks until he too was killed. He was awarded a posthumous Victoria Cross for his heroic action.
