Cameron of Lochiel to Lady Hermione Cameron, 10 November 1914

This letter was written by Donald Walter Cameron of Lochiel at Maida Barracks, Aldershot, to Lady Hermione Cameron at 4 Carlton Terrace, Edinburgh, 10 November 1914. The following is a transcript of the parts of the letter which relate to the war:

I could not get away to Uncle K’s funeral [William Henry Walter Montagu-Douglas-Scott, 6th Duke of Buccleuch 1831-1914, Lochiel’s maternal uncle]. I should so much have liked to have gone. Not least I am sorry because I shan’t see my Treasure. However, I have applied for leave this week end so I may & probably shall turn up Saturday morning. Can you put me up or would I be more comfortable at the New Club?

There is a very sad case in my battalion. I wonder if you could help. It is a man called Jackson. He has assigned half his pay and gets 4 shillings from the Government to assist, total 12 shillings and six pence. Could the SSFA
[Soldiers' and Sailors' Families Association] help I wonder. I enclose letter from Doctor McVicar which speaks for itself.

Correspondence simply mounts up. It is now 8 pm. I must try to write tomorrow.
