Cameron of Lochiel to Lady Hermione Cameron, 10 September 1914 (1 of 2)

This letter was written by Donald Walter Cameron of Lochiel at Maida Barracks, Aldershot, to Lady Hermione Cameron at Buchanan Castle, Drymen on 10 September 1914. The following is a transcript of the parts of the letter which relate to the war:

One line to let you know I am well. A lot of the officers have been very ill with ptomaine poisoning but I can't trace the source. People are inclined to put it down to German spies & I should not be surprised if they had got at the water supplies.

Do send me any cuttings about the raising of this Regiment. They ought to be kept for future reference.
So far I have 2 battalions; I am now into my 3rd.

...The Stock Exchange fellows arrived this morning, a splendid lot.
