Personal information

Son of Albert Ernest and Bertha Bayliss; husband of Betsy Baylis, of Blackpool. Leslie Morris Baylis had already served aboard HMS Prince Leopold during the Sicily landings after meeting his brother at Bougie, Algeria. When the ship was torpedoed after the Normandy landings, he jumped into the water and swam to a lifeboat, where he was given a line to help bring in others. He suffered blast damage in the incident and was invalided out in 1945 before the end of the war.
