General Service Medal 1918-62, Geo VI bar Palestine 1945-48 named to 14473392 CPL. L.H. MORTON, R.E. Leslie Howard Morton age 22 died in service on 30th March 1949 and is buried in the Tripoli Military Cemetery in Libya & is on the Armed Forces Memorial as well as in the Roll of Honour book. Being on the Memorial itself usually indicates Killed in Action & not 'dying in service'  which are in the 'Roll of Honour' book only. On March 30, 1949, a military junta led by Brig.-Gen. Husni al-Zaim, a member of the Kurdish minority, seized power in Syria, with US support. Az-Za'im took power with a promise that he would do "something constructive" about the Arab-Israeli problem. Zaim openly declared his ambition to be the first Arab leader to make peace with Israel. In April, he sent a secret message to Israeli Prime Minister David Ben-Gurion, offering Israel full peace with an immediate exchange of ambassadors, normal economic relations & the resettlement of 300,000 Palestinian refugees in Syria in return for some 'minor border changes' along the ceasefire line & moving the border to the middle of the Sea of Galilee. Ben-Gurion refused to make such an agreement & signed a limited armistice instead. Essentially a dictatorship & highly unpopular, the Az-Za'im regime was overthrown in August by another military junta, & Zaim was executed. Was there a riot at the time & Morton lost his life? NEF
