Death of a Montgomeryshire…


Death of a Montgomeryshire Soldier. An impressive funeral was witnessed last Saturday at Llansilin Churchyard, where were laid to rest the remains* of Trooper David Morris, Rhydleos, Llansilin. Only 38 years of age, deceased was the son of the late Mr John Morris. Lloran Isa, and lived for a considerable time with his sisters at Rhydleos. He volunteered for service in the Boer War, and served in the 49th Com- pany of the Imperial Yeomanry under Cap- tain (now Colonel) Robert Williams-Wynn. The 49th Company left Liverpool on March 13th, 1900, and on April 7th reached Table Bav. He took part in the operations which resulted in the capture of Prinsloo, with 4,000 Boers, at Fouriesberg, and in the actions of Dredaport, Oudersteport, and Haman's Kraal. While engaged on patrol duty at Doornport, a few miles north of Pretoria, Trooper Morris was wounded in the shoulder and taken prisoner. Happily, he was soon re-captured by his friends and recovered from the effects of the wound and returned home. On his return he was pre- sented with the King's Medal, and at a re-union 01 past and present members of the Llangedwyn troop of the Montgomervshire Yeomanry he was presented with a purse of gold and a marble clock.
