Farnborough, church of St. Giles the Abbot: memorial plaque to Lieutenant Gilbert Willan Morris, scoutmaster
Around the war memorial in the churchyard of St Giles the Abbot (the parish church of Farnborough) are many plaques like this, recording for Farnborough's war dead their names, regiments or other units, date of death and place of burial. Lieutenant Gilbert Willan Morris, as noted here, was a scoutmaster in Farnborough; serving in the King's Own Yorkshire Light Infantry, he was killed like so many others on the first day of the Battle of the Somme. He is buried in the heart of the battlefield at Authuille Wood, in the Blighty Valley cemetery [[LinkExternal link]].
