  • Son of John and Margaret Morrison (nee Cameron); husband of Olive Catherine Morrison (nee Muir), of 26, Wairarapa Terrace, Fendalton, Christchurch.

    Morrison was a member of the Hawera Mounted Rifles when he left with the First Contingent for South Africa.

    'Morrison was chosen to represent the First on Lord Roberts' bodyguard. Two days after being attached to the bodyguard, he was chosen for "special duty". There were four chosen for this. Their duty was special sentry on Lord Roberts himself, one of them always within arms length of him with loaded rifle, no matter where he went.' (St Clair Inglis, p.17)
