Stornoway Gazette, 11 December 1942
It is with deep regret we announce the death of Seaman Alexander Morrison through enemy action early in November. Alexander, who was only 22 years of age, was the eldest son of the late Mr Alexander Morrison and Mrs Morrison of New Holdings, Grimshader. A more devoted son than he could not be found anywhere. He shouldered his responsibilities with a manliness rare in one so young. He was of a very jovial disposition and a pleasing and attractive manner. He was most popular in his native village and he will be very much missed. As a naval reservist, he was called up at the outbreak of war and he was in North African waters when he made the supreme sacrifice. We extend our heartfelt sympathy to his widowed mother, his only sister and his three brothers, two of whom are also serving in the Royal Navy.
