Donald Macritchie, Marybank

8 September 1944
Cpl Donald Macritchie, the Bungalow, Marybank, who has been killed in action in France, was a member of the Stornoway Gaelic Choir in peacetime, and a popular singer at Gaelic concerts in the rural area. Donald's Platoon Sergeant writes of him: "He was a great lad, one of the best I've met in my eleven years in the Army, always willing and civil and an inspiration to his section. He was fearless, in fact too fearless. I can tell you Donny, as he was affectionately known in my platoon and company, is greatly missed by myself and many of his old comrades."
