CSM John George MORLEY, 200428
John George Morley was born in 1887.
He had joined the TA before the outbreak of the War, and enlisted in the 4th Battalion Yorkshire Regiment on 4th September 1914.
He did not leave for the Front until July 1917, possibly because as a CSM he would have had responsibility for training new soldiers.
In May 1918 he was captured by the Germans, and interned in Crossen am den Oder.
At the end of the War he was repatriated, but spent much time in hospitals.
He died in Stockton-on-Tees in 1963.
