THE LATE SEAMAN J. MACLENNAN, SHIELDAIG
Seaman John Maclennan, whose photograph is reproduced above, was the son of Mr and Mrs Maclennan, Mary Street, Shieldaig, and who died of pneumonia at the Naval Hospital, Lerwick. The deceased, a promising young man of likeable disposition, was a great favourite with all who knew him, and before joining the Naval Service was a junior student in the Dingwall Academy, where he had a very successful career, and was highly esteemed by his teachers and school companions.
In the Navy he took, with some success, a course of signalling, and his examination officers, as well as his chaplain, ship officers and shipmates, wrote his parents sympathetic letters, all testifying to his keen abilities and exemplary character.
