7 September 1945
Only ten weeks after her marriage, Johan, daughter of Mr Donald Macleod, 56 Roadside [North Tolsta], has been widowed by the sudden death of her husband, Lieut Wood, RA. An Australian, Lieut Wood had served four years in the Mediterranean theatre before coming to this country, where he expected to be demobilised shortly. He had called to consult a doctor when he suddenly collapsed and died. The remains were taken to North Tolsta, under charge of Lieut James, RA, and the funeral took place on Friday. Lieut Wood was only 36. His parents were lost in 1942 when on their way to this country to see him. He has a brother serving in the Navy. Deep sympathy is felt for his widow and other relatives in their bereavement.
