Sunday 6 April

Afternoon all, it's a wet and breezy day in the Western Isles. Not tempted to go outside, so continuing with more searches re WW1 casualties. Am about half-way down my list of 447 names on Ancestry, and keep finding minor and major errors going back to when I started this out-of-control project 7 years ago.

This is SO frustrating. Searching for a Donald Macleod from (the parish of) Barvas in this island, who was killed in Mesopotamia (now Iraq) on 9 April 1917. His service number was 3/7088, but can I find any info on him? No, blazes.

The rain has moved away, but has been replaced by a force 6 from the southwest and some bright spells. The moon passed close to the planet Jupiter after nightfall, quite a spectacular conjunction.
