Biographical history

Lieutenant T. M Morgan was born September 16, 1871 in Ontario, Canada. Morgan was an electrical engineer and later moved to Swift Current, Saskatchewan with his wife. In 1916 he enlisted and was a member of the No. 106 Company, Canadian Forestry Corps during WWI. This company was under the command of Captain G. D. Blakadar. They were stationed at Knockando, Scotland, also known as Spey Valley, from November 1917 and later at Phones Wood, Blacksboat, Scotland.

The Canadian Forestry Corps was established in October 1916 under Lieutenant-Colonel Alexander McDougall with companies in France, numbered under 100, and England, numbered above 101. The companies were employed in forestry operations, as well as clearing and leveling sites for small airports.
