We deeply regret to record the death of Second Hand John Macleod, Brevick, Back. John was a very successful fisherman and joined up when the call came. While on patrol duty, he contracted a chill, which he nevere completely shook off and was in consequence discharged. He was held in high respect which was evident from the unusually high turn-out at his funeral. Much sympathy is felt for the widow who already lost a brother, Lance-Corpl Murdo Maciver, in the war.
