Edward, I have only heard about you quite recently and it looks like you may be the oldest LF known to us.
God Bless....Joe Eastwood Editor.
Congratulations and best wishes to Edward Morrison who celebrated his 100th Birthday today by receiving Citizen of Honour from fellow Lancashire Fusilier Brian Mello in the presence of his family, friends, his carers, neighbours and representatives from the Lancashire Fusiliers.
Edward received a birthday card from Her Majesty The Queen and a Citizen of Honour Certificate from Liverpool Town Hall. James Axon from Liverpool Scottish Pipes and Drums played Happy Birthday on the bagpipes prior to his cake and certificate being presented.
Thank you sincerely to everyone who helped to make Edwards birthday so special... and a special thanks to Edwards family for allowing us to be part of that special day. We were made very welcome and well looked after.
Congratulations again Edward and thank you sincerely
