Biography

Private T A Morrison was serving with the 2/4th Seaforth Highlanders when he passed through Peterborough East Station on 31 March 1917.  He wrote in the visitors’ book “Many thanks for the kind welcome, and treatment received at the Soldiers Rest at Peterboro’ and a Scotsman’s true wish “Lang May your lum reek.”  He also wrote that he was “Stationed (Alas!!!) at Cromer. “

We have not been able to positively identify this soldier, but he may be Private Thomas A Morrison who also served with the 4th Reserve Seaforth Highlanders.  Although the regimental number is different to that which he entered in the visitors’ book, numbers did often change and without a signature to compare we are unable to say for certain that it is him.  We have found a medal card for Private Thomas A Morrison which tells us that he signed up on 25 July 1916 and was discharged on 8 November 1918 due to injuries and was awarded the Silver War Badge.
