Stornoway Gazette, 7 June 1940
Murdo Macleod was killed in action last week on board one of HM trawlers. He was buried on Tuesday afternoon by his shipmates in an English naval port.
His death is particularly tragic. It is only about 6 weeks ago that he married a girl from Grimshader. Since then he has had only one spell of leave at home for a few days after his return from active service in Norway. Originally there were four brothers from this family on service, but Colin was invalided home and now Murdo has given his life. Their father is Malcolm Macleod, Ranish. Great sympathy is felt for the relatives of this lad in their sad loss.
