  • Morris was the son of Herbert and Winnifred Morris from England.

    The Morris family emigrated from the U.K. in 1912, settling in the Auckland suburb of Onehunga.

    The events of Morris's capture by the Germans are outlined in the Official History of the Reserve Mechanical Transport (RMT): "While carrying two companies of Welsh Guards, [Sgt] Gill's party of twelve lorries was attacked six miles out of blitzed and broken Benghazi. After giving an order to 'abandon vehicles and make a get-away', Gill attempted a breakthrough but the road was mined. He split his men into small groups, each party managing to raise a compass and a map ... The plan was for all RMT men to rendezvous eight hours later and about 24 miles south. Nobody turned up, and although one or two got as far as Derna, all but Gill's party were captured". Morris is named in a footnote. (Henderson, p160)

    Although Morris was willing to discuss his wartime experiences, he never joined the RSA and his family remembers him being something of a loner.

    His ashes were scattered in Cornwall Park, One Tree Hill, Auckland AWMM
