Stornoway Gazette, 13 June 1941
Mrs Sim, 7 Kirkibost, Bernera, received official notice on 26th May that her husband, Mr Alexander Edward Sim, Lochside, Nigg, Aberdeenshire, who was engaged in medical duties on HMS Hood was missing, presumed killed. Before being drafted to the ill-fated Hood, Mr Sim, who was 26 years of age, had been for three months in a hospital in the south of England. Before their marriage in Glasgow on 3 January 1941, Mrs Sim, who is the second daughter of Mr and Mrs Angus Macdonald, 7 Kirkibost, Bernera, had been for some years on the staff of Glasgow Royal Mental Hospital and was a sister at the time she relinquished her post. The heartfelt sympathy of a wide circle of friends in Bernera and Glasgow is extended to Mrs Sim in the grievous loss she has sustained.
