Stornoway Gazette, 13 September 1940
On Wednesday of last week, intimation was received by Murdo Macleod, 8 Tolsta Chaolais, that his third son, Murdo, aged 21, was missing believed killed. He had been serving on board HM destroyer "Express" since joining up for the Review in July of last year. He had been almost continuously at sea from the beginning of the war, and had taken part in the evacuation fo the British Army fnature of his service rance. The exacting nature of his service allowed him only two short breaks of a few days at home. His parents have had an anxious time this summer, as another son - James - was posted missing last June and only recently was reported a prisoner of war in Germany. A third son, Donald John, is at present home on leave after a year's service in foreign waters.
