Donald Macphail, 24 North Bragar
The village of Bragar has had to pay its toll for the loss of the Otway. We very much regret to announce that Donald Macphail, 24 North Bragar, was one of the ten killed by the explosion. Macphail was one of the most powerful men in Lewis, standing over six feet in height and built in proportion. He was a very intelligent man, and of a quiet and peaceable nature. He had been gone only a few weeks from home, having had a short leave to attend his mother's funeral. Much sympathy is felt for his widow and family of young children, and also for his sister.
