Leading Aircraftswoman Elizabeth Ross

Date of Paper: 26.02.1943
Surname: Ross
Forename(s): Elizabeth
Rank: Leading Aircraftswoman
Regiment: Women’s Auxiliary Air Force
Home Address: Station House, Garve

Deep sorrow was felt throughout the district when news was received that LACW Elizabeth Ross, WAAF, sister of Mrs A. Scott, Station House, Garve, had passed away at Turnberry Hospital Ayrshire, after a brief illness. Soon after the outbreak of war, she volunteered for service, and was keenly interested in her work. In addition to her ordinary duties, her musical abilities were frequently requisitioned, and cheerfully rendered, at the religious services held on Sunday evenings in the Church of Scotland Huts, and in those of other denominations also. Miss Ross was the elder daughter of the late Mr Robert G. Ross, who for over fifty years was carpenter on the estate of the late Duke of Athole. On his retiral they both came to reside in Garve, where they soon identified themselves with every good cause in the community. Miss Ross took an active part in the work of the Woman’s Guild, the Sunday School and the Girl Guides, and was organist in Strathgarve Church of Scotland. The early demise of such a useful and lovable personality is sincerely mourned; and much sympathy goes out to her sister and brother-in-law in this fresh sorrow, for they are still anxiously awaiting definite news of their only child, Private Alastair Scott 5th Seaforths, reported “missing” in the Middle East last November. The funeral took place at Blair Athol.
