About the memorial: Street named after Petty Officer George McKenzie SAMSON who served in the Royal Naval Reserve on HMS River Clyde during 1915 landing at Gallipoli . As the landing force struggled to establish a bridgehead , he spent the day tending to the large number of wounded and helping with the lines . His service was cut short after he was wounded by machine gun fire. Surgeons were only able to remove four of the suspected 19 bullets but he made a full recovery . There is apparently specific commemorative material in the street, not just a street name - 21st September 2020 commemorative material is no longer there, details added on street sign.
