Private Charles Sweeney drowned at Mucomir, Gairlochy, whilst serving at Achnacarry. A newspaper report shows that he died along with another soldier, Pte Kenneth Drysdale, whilst fishing from a boat with 15 yr old John McKay, the son of a local water baliff from Kilmonivaig. The report states that it appears they lost an oar whilst manoeuvring the boat into a suitable spot near Mucomir Falls on the River Lochy and got carried away into the swirling water.
