Angus Macdonald, Uigen

Stornoway Gazette, 20 March 1942
The whole community and all who knew him are saddened by the news that Angus Macdonald, Uigen, has made the supreme sacrifice. Angus was a clever lad. After leaving school, he attended night classes and studied navigation. At 18 years of age, he joined the Naval Reserve. At 19, he entered the Merchant Service, and at 23 he was boatswain on the SS Cape Horn, sailing between Vancouver and Australia. On the outbreak of war, he rejoined the Navy and lost his life serving under the white ensign. His life was clean and pure. He had a bright and cheerful disposition and was a most dutiful son. He was loved by all his acquaintances. The sympathy of all his friends goes out to the sorrowing father, mother, brother and sisters.
