Stornoway Gazette, 31 January 1941
It is with deep regret that we report the first war casualty from this district. On Tuesday, 21st January, Mr Murdo Macdonald, 7 Lemreway, received news that his son, Seaman Murdo A Macdonald, was lost on war service. Murdo, who was 26 years of age, was of a cheerful and kindly nature. His loss will be felt by all who knew him. To his father, brothers and sisters, the sympathy of the whole community goes out in their very sad bereavement.
