Angus Macleod, Keose

Stornoway Gazette, 2 May 1941
News has been received in Keose that Seaman Angus Macleod, Gate House, has been lost at sea. Full details of the sad event have not yet been received, but it is known to be the result of enemy action. Seaman Macleod was in the naval reserve for a number of years before the outbreak of war, and was called up on the declaration of hostilities. He was mostly engaged on convoy duties in escort cruisers. He was a survivor of the ill-fated "Dunvegan Castle". A cheerful and neighbourly soul, he will be much missed by the villagers. He was 33 years old and single, and lived with an unmarried sister to whom the deep sympathy of the community is extended. His only brother is also serving with the Navy.
