Cameron of Lochiel to Lady Hermione Cameron, 29 May 1915 (1 of 2)

This letter was written by Donald Walter Cameron of Lochiel, in France, to Lady Hermione Cameron at Buchanan Castle, Drymen on 29 May 1915. The following is a transcript of the parts which relate to the war:

I got today your letters of 25th & 26th for which thank you so very very much. I do so appreciate your little packets from Fortnum & Mason which arrived all right. I am not allowed to write where I go to, that is why I could not tell you about the trenches. We are still here. It is a filthy dirty place & where my men are billeted is perfectly horrible. However, I hope we shan’t be here long. The news is fairly good...
