  1. My grandfather was a telegraph linesman with the Post Office Telephones. Though he was born in Eileen Shona we are a Uist family. We never knew of the Marconi Station at Lochboisdale till now. Usually he worked in Glasgow but this would explain why he moved back to Uist with the family @1907-8 (probably posted back). In the 1911 census return we are at 22 North Lochboisdale and my grandfathers profession and employer are listed. My dad was born there in 1911 after the census. The family were English speaking and and native speakers as well. The family are deeply grateful for this posting

  2. It never fails to make us happy when a blog post almost accidentally answer a query or solves a puzzle. Thank you for letting us know!
