Burial Ceremony in France

08 July 2016

A full ceremonial burial will be held for Lance Corporal John Morrison 1st Battalion The Black Watch (Royal Highlander Regiment) at 1100 hours on 27 July 2016 at Woburn Abbey Cemetery, France with The Black Watch, 3rd Battalion The Royal Regiment of Scotland providing support. Lance Corporal Morrison was 29 years old when killed in action on 25 January 1915. Insignia discovered with his remains led the Ministry of Defence's Joint Casualty and Compassionate Centre (JCCC) to trace the infantryman's nearest living relatives and determine his identity. The service is being organised by the JCCC and will be attended by family members and Regimental representatives.
