Photocopies of three airmail letters between brothers Angus (Gus) and Alasdair (Ali) McLellan, and to their mother Mrs R McLellan, Linlithgow, dated March 1943 and December 1944. Angus served with RAF Ceylon, while Ali served with the Hussars. The letter dated 20/3/1943 from Ali to his mother mentions Charles MacLean of Cornaig, who went missing in action: “Has Mrs MacLean heard any more news about Charles or is he still missing? She must be very upset over it all. How is his father taking the news?” The letters were found by the Findlaters in the old School House in Scarinish.
