Stornoway Gazette, 11 October 1918
Official information has been received of the death of Malcolm Macleod, RNR of 23 Garenin. He joined up at the beginning of the war, sasw service in the Mediterranean and was on board the ill-fated Majestic when she was sunk. Mr Macleod, who was a deacon in the Carloway UF Church, was a bright Christian of more than the ordinary intelligence and was highly respected by all who knew him. His death has caused a blank which can hardly be filled. The Church will miss a pious and genuine Christian and the community will be much the poorer for his loss. The greatest sympathy is extended to his widow and young children in their great sorrow.
