Mack, thanks for all that.

I've a feeling as though Murrison is the Morrison without a number in Timbermans 1st & 2nd PoW post http://themanchesters.org/forum/index.php?topic=8280.0
No one could find anything further on him at the time. I'll leave Munroe and Mullin in the database, who knows what might surface in the future.

Have you had any luck with Harry Morton?

Thanks Mack

I think this is 202500 Thomas Vaughan (2732 in the database), what do you think?

http://grandeguerre.icrc.org/en/File/Details/3694089/3/2/

As far as I can make out he was born 18.09.1896 in Hulme and his address is 22 Charles........., Salford

Another old one from the database

Henry Murray (no number), taken 01.03.1918, Strand Place. There isn't a Manchesters Henry Murray in the MiCs,  but there is a Harry Murray 51496 later 31350 Border Regt. Could that be him?
