Margaret Campbell, Cheesebay, North Uist

2 February 1945
News was received recently by Mrs Annie Campbell, 3 Cheesebay, that her daughter, Margaret, who has been in the RAF nursing services since her enlistment three years ago, is missing. Margaret was, of late, engaged as an air ambulance nurse, and made several trips to bases in Holland, Belgium and France since the Normandy landing and helped to bring relief and comfort to many of our wounded soldiers. Mrs Campbell and her family have the sympathy of the community in their present anxiety, but the hope is entertained that the plane may have made a forced landing, and that the ambulance crew and nursing staff are prisoners in enemy territory.

Transcriber's note: Margaret Campbell is listed as having lost her life on 24 October 1944, and lies buried at Calais.
