Stornoway Gazette, 1 August 1941
The island of Scalpay was cast in gloom on the evening of Wednesday 16 July when it became known that Calum Macleod, son of Mr Donald John Macleod, Brae Cottage, Scalpay, had died suddenly after an accident aboard his ship. Calum who was 27 years of age, was very much liked by everyone. He was a very diligent son. His father is a widower with seven of a family. When the eldest was only 12 years, his wife died, yet they all grew up well. Calum who left home in his teens, was a great help to his father. Mr Macleod has another son in the Merchant Navy and one in the Navy. The sincere sympathy of the community goes out towards the whole family in their sad loss.
