A short time ago, Mr Ewen Morison, 17 Breanish, received the sad news of the death of his youngest son, Donald John Morison, at the front. The aged father had been in ill health for some time back, and this bereavement has been to him and to the rest of the family a sore blow indeed. The full sympathy of the community goes out to them in their great trouble.
Another correspondent writes:
We regret to have to announce that last week Mr Ewen Morrison, 17 Breanish, received word from the War Office to the effect that his son, Pte Donald John Morrison, Canadians, was killed in action in France on 1 October. This was Mr Morrison's youngest and only son serving, and the sec ond fine lad from this small village during the past month to give his life that we might live.
