Stornoway Gazette, 19 January 1940
We regret to announce that Mr Donald John Morrison, Kyles Scalpay, has been informed by wire of the loss of his son, Malcolm, aged 24. Before the war, Malcolm was in the RNR, and on the outbreak of hostilities he was called up for service. No particulars are as yet available as to how Malcolm met his death. A very likeable lad much respected in his own township and elsewhere, his death has caused much sorrow and sympathy is felt for his parents and other members of the family.
