The surnames appearing below are of servicemen and women who featured in The Ross-shire Journal during 1939-45. Newspaper copies had been deposited with Dingwall Museum but over the years had become rather fragile and were in danger of disintegrating and so it was felt that this valuable record should not be lost.

LOST AT SEA
Chief Officer A. D. Ross, M.N., is reported missing, and presumed lost at sea. He was a son of the late Police Constable Donald Ross, and of Mrs Ross, Navity, Applecross, and joined the Merchant Navy when he was 15 years of age, serving on the Andrew Weir Line. During his last leave he married Miss Jessie Mackenzie, Gairloch, a former pupil of Dingwall Academy, and who resided in the Hostel. A younger brother, Lt. Murdo Ross, R.E., was on the staff of the Dingwall Post Office. Much sympathy is extended to the widowed mother and his brothers and sisters, who have suffered a further loss in the death on 8th October, 1943, of Miss Isobella Ross, Pyramid Cottage, Dingwall, sister-in-law of Mrs Ross, and aunt of the deceased Chief Officer Ross. The late Miss Ross, who was a daughter of the late Police Constable Alexander Ross, Ross and Cromarty Constabulary, is survived by two sisters, Mrs Angus Munro, London, and Miss Mary Ross, Pyramid Cottage, Dingwall.
