The whole of the district was again plunged into grief when the news arrived that [...] Norman Maciver, RNR, 34 Coll, had offered up the supreme sacrifice.
He was on board HMS Newmarket when she was torpedoed on 16 July in the Mediterranean, and all on board perished. Norman was at one time postman between Back and Tolsta, and was a great favourite with all the people he came into contact with. Notwithstanding the many sad and distressing incidents in his life, he was a man of very cheery disposition. The sad ending to a sad life has caused widespread regret in the district, and the deepest sympathy is felt for the sorrowing orphans and the other relations.
