Alison MacRae from Canada had the following question on the World War II Tribute for Lewis:
On doing research on the family’s homestead in Lochganvich I was very surprised to see this of my relation Donald Murdo Maciver. Was trying to find out more, it said drowned of Harwich, but he was on a Normandy convoy. Looked up the Lowestoft Naval Panel and found his name listed. Are they are any relations still up in the Isle of Lewis. My grandfather was Donald (Daniel) Maciver married to Ann Macintosh, my mother’s name was Rachell. Mum married a Samuel Rennie in Glasgow and then we moved to Canada.
