BIOGRAPHY

The name Walter Morrison is listed on Newtownards and District War Memorial and in the booklet produced for the Unveiling and Dedication Ceremony held on Saturday 26 May 1934 he is described as a Private in the Colonials.  The organising committee of the day decided to include the names of ex-servicemen who died up to that date from what they considered to be war related causes, whether as a result of wounds or disease.

Walter Morrison was 38 when he died of pulmonary tuberculosis on 23 May 1923 in Newtownards Hospital.  On his death certificate it is recorded that he was married, his home address was 6 Thomas Street, Newtownards and he was a ‘discharged soldier and dyer’.

Walter Morrison is commemorated on Newtownards and District War Memorial.
