Argyll and Sutherland volunteers camp

Two soldiers attend to the bedding observed by others at this Argyll & Sutherland Highlanders volunteers camp. There were two companies of volunteers in the Campbeltown area at the time. The Argyll Highland Rifles were an infantry unit, and the 1st Argyll and Bute Garrison Artillery (Volunteers) a coastal defence artillery unit. The photographers Charles and Dennis MacGrory were volunteers and took the opportunity to photograph the annual camps.

The bearded gentleman in the middle of the photograph is believed to be Mr Frederick Jordan and was identified by his great-great-grandson, an Am Baile user.
