Son of Lucy Hemmings (formerly Morse), of 10, Timber St., Chippenham,
Wilts, and the late William E. Morse.
HMS Lassoo, British, Laforey class Destroyer. Mined in the North
Sea.sunk by mine explosion. Some reports say the ship was torpedoed by
UB-10 commanded by Kapitšnleutnant Gustav Buch.
In loving memory of my dear son Henry G Morse who lost his life on HMS
Lassoso August 13th 1916.
I often sit and think of him
When I am all alone
For memory is the only friend
That grief can call itís own.
Like ivy and the withered oak,
All things decay:
My love for him still keeps green
And never fade away.
Ever remembered by his loving Mother.
10 Timber Street.
Wilts Times 18 August 1917
