Donald Murray, 31 Swainbost

Mr Angus Murray, 31 Swainbost, has received intimation that his son Donald, who was a sailor on a merchant steamer, was drowned in Baltimore harbour at the end of December 1917. He was ashore buying some clothing and on returning to the steamer he slipped off the wharf, the whole place being one sheet of ice at the time.
Donald was for some time mail driver between Ness and Stornoway, before the advent of the motorcar, and was a great favourite on the entire route. Much sympathy is extended to his parents, brothers and sisters in their bereavement.
