Historia biográfica

Jenny Macgregor Morris, 1879-1960, was born in the United Kingdom. During the First World War she assisted her mother in operating a boarding house at 34 Bedford Street in London. She gave favorable rates for servicemen on leave, and she could accommodate up to 90 guests at one time. Her establishment quickly became the venue of choice for all ranks of the PPCLI, and she was known as the "Big Sister" or the "London Mother" of the regiment. Beyond offering accommodation, she mended clothing, helped the men write their letters home, acted as a confidante, and safeguarded the personal effects of men who had been killed in action. After the war she lived at Stanmore, Middlesex. She continued her association with the PPCLI, annually placing a wreath on its behalf at the Cenotaph in London. She corresponded with veterans, and is said to have written over 1500 letters annually. In 1938 the PPCLI sponsored her two-month tour of Canada, during which she received many honours, including Freedom of the City of Ottawa and being named an honorary princess of the Sarcee Tribe. During the Second World War she held open houses for members of the PPCLI. In 1957 she visited the regiment at Hemer, West Germany. In 1958 she suffered injuries in a car accident, from which she never fully recovered. She died on March 5, 1960 at Gorleston, Norfolk, England.
