WWII Merchant Navy medal

The search for the family of James Edwin Morrison was a difficult one. I received his medal in 2008 and didn't get very far. The only information I had was the WWII nominal roll entry as Merchant Navy records are not readily available.
Morris took this one on and ended up purchasing James' death certificate. This gave us the names of James' son and from there it was a rather easy search. James' grandson has posted a family tree on Ancestry so I contacted him through that. The key was James' son's name, so thank you Morris.
Thank you also to Geoff of Eatons Hill who sent me the medal originally.
The medal retuned tally is now 1064.
