Stornoway Gazette, 4 October 1940
On Monday of last week the body of a man was washed ashore on Little Bernera. THe body was found by two young lads who happened to pay a visit to the island. There was no clue to the identify the body, but it was not that of a naval rating as the man had been dressed in gabardine trousers. The body was taken across to Bernera and on Wednesday interred at Bosta Cemetery. That day had been set aside in Bernera as a fank day, but as a mark of respect the fank was left over until the following week.
