Murdo Dan Macdonald, 14 Portvoller

Was studying for the ministry at outbreak of war. Writing to Lt Macdonald's father, his captain said: "We had put up two big mines and your son and another officer were detailed with a party of men to seize the craters. They gallantly succeeded in doing this. Having shortly afterwards to give up one of the craters, your son, with great pluck and at great risk, came back for men. Having obtained them, he again returned to the attack. Unfortunately, just as he got into the crater, he got shot."
