The Morrison brothers

The Morrison brothers

Waltham fared better than many villages in terms of the percentage of men who returned from The Great War. So it’s doubly tragic that one family should have suffered the loss of two sons.

I’ve just posted what little information I have of George and Jim Morrison; whose names are commemorated on the village War Memorials.

24-year-old George died in action at the Second Battle of Ypres. And 28-year-old Jim died of his wounds during the blood-bath that was the Battle of the Somme. Click on either link to view.
