Stornoway Gazette, 19 July 1940
William Macleod, 20 Shore Street, North Tolsta, was on a ship that was lost with all hands. A younger brother was reported missing a fortnight ago, and two other brothers are serving in the Army. His eldest brother was killed in the last war. Last year "Sime", as he was popularly called, married Christina, eldest daughter of Mr and Mrs Donald Macmillan, Glen Tolsta, and made his home in Glasgow. To his young widow and relatives we tender our deep sympathy.
