The Stirling Roll of Honour has:
Morrison, James M., Major, 5th Royal Irish Rifles

There was no-one with these details on CWGC and too many others with this name to be able to identify him.
Thanks to the British Newspaper Archive, I found a death notice for James Maidment Morrison in August 1915 stating that he had died in Alexandria of pneumonia following wounds received in action in the Dardanelles. Armed with these details I found him:
MORRISON, JAMES MAIDMENT
Sergeant
Service Number 752
Died 11/06/1915
13th Bn.
Australian Infantry, A.I.F.
ALEXANDRIA (CHATBY) MILITARY AND WAR MEMORIAL CEMETERY L 105

Hmm, not a major and not in the Royal Irish Rifles!!
His Australian service record shows that he had served 14 years with the 53rd Regiment of RIR. It also states he was born in Stirling so it looks as if I do have the right one.


Another brick wall demolished - only 36 to go!!
