Subject: [ORKNEY] 06 July 1842 4 South Ronaldsay men drowned

I have a copy of a newspaper clipping from the Inverness Journal dated
22 July 1842 regarding the sinking of a fishing boat, I think off
Stromness in which it is stated 5 men drowned 4 of whom were South
Ronaldsay men. The article does not provide the names, so I am
wondering if anyone can direct me to who these men were.
