Cpl Joseph Henry Morgans was wounded and left to die on the battlefield in December 1917. German surgeons saved his life and he spent the remainder of the war in a prisoner of war camp together with a large number of Russian prisoners. After the war, he walked to Denmark and eventually managed to return to his family in time for Christmas 1918.
