Memoirs of Douglas Morris
Douglas E D Morris
Now in March 2003 and shortly in July this year to reach my 91st birthday, I have decided I must answer the pressure from a number of relatives and good friends to put on paper a little of our life story. This I will try to do with all humility but it is the wonderful story of the life and accomplishments of Joan Richardson, the girl who in March 1940 came out to Malaya to marry me and was my beloved wife for 62 years and in spite of many hazards, wonderfully happy before being called to her eternal rest in October 2001 at the splendid age of 92.
To recall briefly a little of my early days, my dear father always hoped I was to be a soldier so, to his delight, I passed into Sandhurst to start in January 1931 from my Public School, Bloxham.
