Hudson Taylor Macfarlane, 27 Kenneth Street, Stornoway
Widespread regret was felt on Tuesday [24 April 1917] when it became known that corporal Hudson Taylor Macfarlane, Canadian Mounted Rifles, only surviving son of the late J. F. Macfarlane, Inspector of the Poor, had been killed in action. Corporal Macfarlane, aged 23, after serving some time in a London commercial house, emigrated to Canada some time ago. He was enlisted in Dominion forces soon after the outbreak of war and came across in an early contingent. He was sent to France soon after arriving in this country, and was wounded about a year ago. He was able to rejoin his regiment and was killed in fighting on 28 March 1917.
