Cameron of Lochiel to Lady Hermione Cameron, 18 November 1914 (2 of 2)

This letter was written by Donald Walter Cameron of Lochiel at Maida Barracks, Aldershot, to Lady Hermione Cameron at 4 Carlton Terrace, Edinburgh on 18 November 1914. The following is a transcript of the parts of the letter which relate to the war:

...write you daily to say all is well.

I had a good journey south & thought of you as I passed below your window. Fancy you hearing the train. Beattie met me in London & although the streets were horribly skiddy we got here at 4.30 am. We have been having hard frost here for the last 2 days.
Many thanks for your darling letter I got this morning …

Now I must stop as my battalion has to be got ready to move at a moment’s notice.

With my best love my own Darling & you can count on my giving the Teutons socks
[i.e. beating the Germans] should they dare to land. Of course this is all very confidential.
