Stornoway Gazette, 18 December 1942
It was with deep regret the community learned that two West Uig lads have lost their lives on HMS Avenger. They are Neil Buchanan, son of Malcolm Buchanan, 11 Breanish, and Malcolm Mackay, son of the late Alexander Mackay, 24 Valtos. Buchanan has a brother serving with the Army. Mackay's father gave his life in the last war.
