Norman R Macleod, 23 Sheshader

Stornoway Gazette, 10 April 1942
On Monday 30 March, Mrs Norman Macaulay, 23 Sheshader, received official intimation that her nephew, Leading Aircraftman Norman R. Macleod, Canadian Air Force, had died in a hospital in England. LAC Macleod was the son of Mr and Mrs John Macleod, Fort William Ontario. He volunteered for service in the Canadian Air Force and having finished his training, came over to this country in November 1941, the convoy in which he travelled being the largest which up to that time had crossed the Atlantic. He took advantage of his first leave in December to visit his aunt and make the acquaintance of his relatives in the island. His remains were brought to Sheshader and on 3 April were laid to rest at Aignish. Norman was 20 years of age and an only son. To his father, mother and 3 sisters, and to all his relatives on the other side of the Atlantic and here in lewis we extend our deep sympathy in their tragic bereavement. His father, John Macleod, 3 Sheshader, emigrated to Canada when he was 18. Some years ago he paid a visit to the island. Mrs Macleod belongs to Fort William, Ontairo.
