Cameron of Lochiel to Lady Hermione Cameron, 28 May 1915 (2 of 2)

This letter was written by Donald Walter Cameron of Lochiel, in France, to Lady Hermione Cameron at Buchanan Castle, Drymen on 28 May 1915. The following is a transcript of the parts which relate to the war:

Strange to say we have not moved today but are still where we were. I have got the best billet I have had yet. Electric light, clean bed, clean sheets & towels. I have been round some trenches today but not into them. Everything very quiet. Well, we all hope our new Government will do something. There is only one thing to do [ie bring in conscription] & the sooner it is done the sooner will this war end & the less lives will be lost. Meanwhile we all wait in hopes. It is very much cooler today & quite cold last night. It is really very difficult to find anything to say. I see we have lost another ship in the Dardanelles & wonder if we shall go on with that show now. I think the Russians seem to be holding the Bosches [Germans] now & Italy has made a good start.
