With reference to the recent queries about Fionnphort, I wondered if this
would be relevant. I came across the info while searching the CWGC Debt of
W. MacKechnie, Deck Hand 16771/DA
S.S. LAVATERA, Royal Naval Reserve
Died Sunday 27th April 1919, aged 26 years
Son of Duncan & Margaret Mae MacGillivray MacKechnie
of Fionphort, Ross of Mull. Buried at Fionphort Burial Ground.
