Macleod, Boyd Alexander (1867–1925)

The death of Mr. Boyd Alexander Cunninghame Macleod, of Bungarimble, near Tumbarumba, N.S.W., will be felt with the deepest regret by a very large circle of friends. He was in indifferent health some months ago, but seemed to have recovered, and his sudden death at the station on the 24th of last month was a great shock.

Aged 58 years, he was the eldest son of the late Mr. Donald Macleod, of Brighton (Vic.), and was very well known in Riverina. Educated at Melbourne and Geelong Grammar Schools, he was as a young man a skilled athlete and a good horseman, and at the time of the South African war went over with remounts. In March 1917 he enlisted in the Field Company Engineers, was subsequently transferred to Engineers' Details, and returned to Australia in 1919.

For some years he was a councillor of Tumbarumba shire and an active member of the Soldiers ' Settlement Board. He married a daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. John Spiller, of North Yathong and Somerset Park, Riverina.
