Biography

Gunner H Murray passed through Peterborough East Station and wrote in the visitors’ book on 29 August 1916.  He was serving with the Royal Field Artillery and was part of a group of “9 jolly boys, all signallers, stationed at Norwich”.  A comment from another member of the group said “next week somewhere in France dear Mother, but they will still be smiling”.  Gunner Murray’s entry in the visitors’ book read “Every man is the architect of his own fortune – but not in the Army. NB Honi soit qui mal y pense”. This French quote translates as “Shame on him who thinks evil of it” (the motto of the Order of the Garter).

Gunner Murray’s service records have not been traced and we do not have enough information to positively identify him.  Do you recognise his entry in the visitors’ book as something someone is your family may have said?

Please get in touch if you can help us to identify him.
