Geo.Vl (2nd type) Army Meritorious Service Medal
Lewis A. Morrison
who had a long career in the British Army – retiring with the rank of Captain Quartermaster.
The medal is correctly impressed
7868798 W.O. CL. 1. L.A. MORRISON. A.E.C.
It’s in very good (NEF) condition.
Lewis A. Morrison served with several units in the First World War: the Highland Light Infantry (242761),
the Royal Scots (42277) and the Tank Corps (307784).
His Medal Index Card (photocopy supplied) shows entitlement to a British War Medal & Victory Medal.
His regimental number then changed to the post-war seven-digit (Royal Tank Regiment) number 7868798:
he then transferred to the Army Educational Corps.
He was initially based in the UK – but was posted to India in the mid 1930s.
The 1937 Army List shows him back in the UK, based at Bramley in Surrey.
He was pensioned on the 28th October 1938, as a WO1.
He was recalled for Second World War service on the 21st June 1939,
as a Lieutenant Quartermaster (later Captain Quartermaster)
with the 2nd Northamptonshire Yeomanry (Royal Armoured Corps), based at Northampton.
He retired, due to disability, on the 21st December 1944, with the rank of Captain Quartermaster.
This is a scarce MSM to one of the ‘small units’ – awarded for service prior to the AEC being granted “Royal” status in November 1946.

Thanks to the er wo corrected the location of Bramley. It would appear that he was based at Bramley Green, Hampshire, usually shortened to Bramley, and not Bramley in Surrey.
