Archibald Craig, 61 Bayhead Street, Stornoway

Was a trumpeter in the Stornoway Section RMB and mobilised in August 1914 when only 16 years of age. Discharged on medical grounds, he was still determined to serve and after several unsuccessful attempts to pass the medical test, he was accepted for the West Yorks in August 1916. On the way to Egypt he had to go into hospital at Cyprus, but afterwards rejoined his regiment in France, where he was killed.
