Corporal Henry Arthur Morris (30). Royal Marines, whose wife lives with her parents at 44 Clepington Road, Dundee, has died from rheumatic fever at Fayid, Egypt. He had been in hospital for a month. A native of Mitcham, Surrey, he met his wife when his minesweeper, Rosemary, on which he served as a stoker, was based at Dundee. He joined the Marines in 1948, and a year ago was posted to Malta. After a few months he was moved to Egypt. Corporal Morris was keen on football and swimming. A seven-year-old daughter, Patricia, is a pupil at Clepington School.
