The death occurred on Sunday at Parramatta (N.S.W.) of Mr. James Morrison, only surviving son of the late Dr. Alexander Morrison, of Scotch College.

Early in the Great War he enlisted although considerably over age, for service overseas, and he was attached to a remount unit in Egypt. Mr. Morrison leaves a family of one son and two daughters.
