On the Dundee Training College memorial is Malcolm Macivor,RNVR. I cannot trace him on SNWM or CWGC definitively. and there is no information in any local papers.He is either Malcolm Maciver

Seaman
2778/A
RNR HMS Victory
1/1/1919
35

or

Deckhand
10235/DA
Iolaire
1/1/1919

or less likely

Leading Boatman
225994
RN HMS Jupiter
29/1/1916
48

He was clearly a teacher so can any of the sleuths find him please as i want to include him in our Roll of Honour

Thanks
Hugh

Hugh,

Hope links works. Malcolm Maciver who drowned on the Iolaire was a teacher

Well found Mark Very Happy

He was my "favourite" as Deckhand was commonly an RNVR rank.

Hi Hugh.

If you send me your personal e-mail address via PM, I'll send you a copy of his Naval Record page.

Stated is that he previously served 2 years on Merchant Vessels and died of pernicious anaemia at the British Hospital, Port Said, 29th January 1916.

His death register entry is indexed as Malcolm MacIVOR but appears to read MacIVER and his age is shown as 37, which aligns with his DoB of 20/12/1881, rather than the 35 on his gravestone.

Malcolm MacIver, Teacher and Seaman Royal Naval Reserve (single) died 1 January 1919 between 2 and 4 AM at sea near Holm Point, Stronoway (Usual Residence 28 Aignish, Stornoway) Age 37. Father Malocolm Maciver, Crofter Mother Catherine Maciver MS Finlayson (deceased)
Death Asphyxia due to immersion. Registered by brother Colin (?) Finlayson MacIver of 31 Harlaw Street, Port Dundas, Glasgow on 19 February 1919.

I have discovered that Malcom Mciver was a teacher at Wallace Hall Academy pre 1914. I cannot see a memorial or roll of honour or the school on the Forum.
Might the sleuths in that area see if they can track anything down please?
I am particularly keen to find a pic of him-perhaps either in the school magazine(if one exists) or the local newspaper?
He died on 1st January 1919 in the Iolaire tragedy.
The school I was at Closeburn in Dumfriesshire.
Thanks
Hugh

I have not been able to uncover a ROH for Wallace Hall but the person to ask would be Gladys Cuttle (Teddy) so I suggest you send her a PM.
