Yet another Uig boy lost

Excerpt from Stornoway Gazette and West Coast Advertiser


April 5th, 1918

YET ANOTHER: Last week, Mr. Hugh Mackay, Valtos, received the sad information that his son, Angus Mackay A.S.C was accidentally killed in Egypt on the 7th ult. Only last December Angus left this country for France, where he served for some short time, and must have arrived in Egypt quite recently. He leaves a widow and four children in Manchester, and to them and his aged parents and other relatives the sympathy of the community is extended in their sad and sore bereavement.
