St. Cyprian’s (Episcopal) Church, Beech Road, Lenzie.

My thanks to the Rector, Revd. Les Ireland for allowing access to the church.



The Lych Gate at the entrance to the church is also believed to have been erected or dedicated as a war memorial.



There is no inscription or plaque anywhere to explain the war connection - the information was supplied by the Rector.

At the outbreak of the present war he mobilised with the 9th Argyll & Sutherland Highlanders and was for a time in Dumbarton before his health gave way. He was a great favourite with the men, being if an exceedingly frank and obliging disposition and a very capable instructor. He wife died about a year ago, and much sympathy is expressed for his orphaned family of two sons and two daughters. Both sons are in the army. The eldest son, Sergeant Sidney Morrison, was in the Argyll & Sutherland Highlanders at the outbreak of war and took part in the retreat from Mons, when his regiment was decimated. Since then he has been in the Royal Engineers. The other son, Private John Maxwell Morrison is in the Royal Marines. Col. Sergeant Morrison’s remains were interred in the Auld Aisle Cemetery on Monday.
