Last Friday (15 November), Mr John Macaulay, 12 Kirkibost, received intimation by wire that his youngest son, Seaman John Macaulay, RNRT, had died in a Dundee hospital at the early age of 20 years. He was laid aside with influenza and pneumonia setting in, he succumbed. His early death has cast a gloom over the district. He was a promising young man, and his fine character and amiable disposition endeared him to all his friends. Deep sympathy is felt towards the bereaved parents, sisters and brothers, in their sad and irrepairable loss.
