Charles Kemble, 9 Holm

Stornoway Gazette, 13 September 1940
It was with deep regret that his friends in the Stornoway district, and particularly in Holm, learned of the death of Charles Kemble, grandson of John Campbell, 9 Holm. Charles, who was only 21 years of age, was on service with the Army, attached to an English unit. He was born at Holm and brought up there by his grandmother until he was 15 years of age. He was educated at Sandwick School and worked for a time with Macphail Bros., Stornoway. A very likeable fellow, he left many friends in the district when he went south about 6 years ago. He leaves a widow and a young child. Great sympathy is felt for his sister, Mrs Hepburn, 14 Scotland Street, who has had an anxious time since her husband, John Hepburn, of the Ross Battery, was posted missing in June.
