William Joseph MORCOM (Bill)(17687)
Family Code: ILLOGANarthur CONSTANTINEwilliam

BIRTH:
16Mar1924 in Perth. The World War II Roll says he was born on 16 March 1924 but in the interview he says that he was born in 1925. Ken Jones has 4 May 1925. The W.A. registry indexes has William 1926, reg, No. 1319. Did William add a year to his age to join the VDC?

DEATH:
May 2007 in Palmyra WA AUS.

BURIAL:
16May2007 in Fremantle Cemetery WA AUS. 82 yrs old

EDUCATION:
At High School, aged 14, in 1939

RESIDENCES:

OCCUPATIONS:
ABT 1940 Storeman for G Foot Son & Co., Wholesale Grocery firm in Fremantle.
24Mar1942 Gun Layer for 2nd Battalion Voluntary Defence Corps in Fremantle.Occupation Note: Service No. W67864, next of kin H.MORCOM [was this his father Hugh MORCOM?] He had joined a small bore rifle club and was there approached to join the Voluntary Defence Corps at the age of 16. For the first 6 months they drilled with wooden rifles, but then joined an anti-aircraft gun unit where they practiced every Sunday.
Occupation Note: William's job in the AA unit was gun layer, keeping the gun on target. As there was a shortage of men to pack army and navy stores in the foodstuffs range, William was not called up for the Regular Army..
Occupation Note: People looked slighty askance at a young man in a green rather than brown uniform but this did not worry William. In addition to Sundays he was on duty one night a week, but never saw any action.

GENERAL NOTE:
Most of the information about William Joseph MORCOM comes from a long interview he gave on 27 Feb 1990 to Susan GREEN. This focussed mainly on the work of the Voluntary Defence Corps which several other MORCOMs joined.

I believe he did get married at one time and was very happily so, but before this he had done practically everything, including cattle punching in Montana. He came back to this country and died at a ripe old age in South Devonshire."We assume that William on the 1861 UK census is the same as William Q. MORCOM who died age 76, as his is the only suitable death we can find in DEV.

DEATH:
12Jul1965 in Coffs Harbour NSW AUS. Son of Benjamin and Elizabeth. It is suspected that his father William Bennett MORCOM was known as Ben by his Austrlian descendants which led to the probably incorrect assumption that his father's name was "Benjamin".William Thomas's 2 yrs older brother John MORCOM (17055) also emigrated to Australia bef 1920. The 1890 birth of this William Thomas is also a good match for the Australian William Thomas's death in 1967 age 75 Age at death: 75
