    I have checked Scotland's People and verified my records in that Catherine Ann Macdonald died of TB at the Lewis Sanitorium. She was based at RAF Stornoway. She was from 19 Laxay, Isle of Lewis. The eldest daughter of John and Marion Macdonald (nee Macaskill), Katie Ann (as she was called by friends)was interred at Old Laxay Cemetery (Lacsaidh is Scottish Gaelic for Laxay).

    Hello,

    MALAYSIA.

    145140 LAC Rowland Hill WATT (Junior) RAAF.

    145140 LAC (DMT) Rowland Hill WATT (Jnr.) RAAF (of No.5 Airfield Construction Squadron, Labuan Island), Died of injuries in No.2/6 Australian General Hospital, Labuan Island, on 8 December, 1945. Although Watt is listed with a cause of death as 'Illness', it is known he was involved in an accident on Labuan Island, and suffered a ruptured spleen.

    Rowland Watt was one of those unfortunates whose NOK (his father) was contacted on 11 August, 1960 - the letter was returned unopened (F.R.R.).

    Col.
