    These three are listed on the same page on the Statutory Deaths register on the Scotland's People website. The amended entry for Strom has the following:

    When and where died: About 3 p.m. in field adjacent to Loandhu to Lochslin public road near roadbridge over L.M.S. railway line, in Parish of Fearn and county of Ross and Cromarty.

    CLARK, Leo - LAC - can't find him on the Scotland's People site.

    Regards
