18 August 1944
Stornoway friends of the family will learn with regret that Pte W. A. Maciver, son of Mr and Mrs Alex J. Maciver, 1109 Broadview Avenue, Toronto and grandson of the late Mr and Mrs Wm. Maciver, 3 Westview Terrace, Stornoway, has been killed in action in Normandy. He was serving with the Canadians. Pte Maciver joined the Territorials practically as soon as he left school, and came over to this country with them last year. He visited Stornoway towards the end of last year and made a very favourable impression on all who met him. He hoped to return to Stornoway in the spring of this year, but his leave was cancelled. He was only 21 years of age. His father, Mr Alex J Maciver, will be well remembered in Stornoway. He is a joiner to trade and served his apprenticeship with Messrs Ross and Mackenzie.
