Stornoway Gazette, 17 April 1942
The community learned wtih regret that Mr Donald Gillies, 24 South Dell, has been informed that his youngest son, Malcolm, RNR, has been lost at sea through enemy action in the Far East. Malcolm was a bright young lad, and a favourite with everyone with whom he came into contact. He had not been home since war broke out. The sympathy of all friends goes out to the sorrowing parents, brothers and sisters at home and on war service.
