Stornoway Gazette, 26 July 1940
Before the Secretary of the Admiralty announced with regret the loss of HMS minesweeper Crestflower, we knew that Angus Nicolson, 9 Shore Street, North Tolsta, had paid the price. He was one of two ratings killed in the action. Nicolson was well known to road users as the surfaceman on the Tolsta-Gress section for a number of years. He was the eldest son of the late Mr and Mrs Donald Nicolson.
