Service details

Private 6124 Arthur Capel Morris, Royal Munster Fusiliers

CWGC record ...

Although the Memorial inscription is ARTHUR CAPEL MORRIS, LIEUT, RFC. there is no entry for a Lieutenant in the RFC for this name.
Officers Died in the Great War shows ARTHUR CUKELYN MORRIS, CWGC records show ARTHUR CUHELYN MORRIS as a Lieutenant in the RFC, and it seems likely that the entry on the War Memorial was incorrectly inscribed.
The CWGC entry for ARTHUR CAPEL MORRIS shows a Private in the Royal Munster Fusiliers and this is the person commemorated, as his parents Mr and Mrs Capel Morris are shown as being resident at "Brookfield" Binstead Road, Ryde, in the Kelly's Directory for Hampshire and the Isle of Wight, 1911.
