Kenneth David Morris of the 53rd Btn the H.L.I. is also listed on the Hoselaw Chapel Roll of Honour.

He is buried in Friockheim cemetery after he died of acute pneumonia in hospital at Kinghorn, Fife. He was the third son of Mr & Mrs Morris of Mainhouse Lodge, Kelso. His grandfather George Dorward resided in Friockheim. According to SNWM he was born at Roscrea, Tipperary.

I cannot see his name on any civic memorials, he is not on those at Friockheim, Arbroath or Kelso. He is however in the Arbroath RoH.

Derek.
