Macpherson Family, Kyle of Lochalsh

Duncan Macpherson, his son Neil and wife Margaret along with Sally their dog, sit on sandbags outside their home Glenquithel in Kyle of Lochalsh. The cellar of their house was an air raid shelter during the Second World War, although it was seldom used despite Kyle of Lochalsh serving as a Naval Base for the duration of the war. Neil was about 19 years old in this photograph, possibly taken by his sister Mary. Neil died aged just 24 on 21st May 1944, as a result of injuries sustained while serving with the 16th Army Ordnance Depot in Kent.

The photograph is printed as a postcard, but the reverse has a purple overstamp stating "CANCELLED THIS IS NOT A POSTCARD"
