Cameron of Lochiel to Lady Hermione Cameron, 24 September 1914 (4 of 4)

This letter was written by Donald Walter Cameron of Lochiel at Maida Barracks, Aldershot, to Lady Hermione Cameron at Buchanan Castle, Drymen on 24 September 1914. The following is a transcript of the parts of the letter which relate to the war:

...and we are to be reviewed on Laffan's Plain.

I sent on your Father's Postcard to Sir Spencer Ewart [Lieutenant General Sir John Spencer Ewart 1861-1930, General Officer Commanding Scottish Command] as I was writing in any case. There must he some fatal mistake about those 4 men. I am still recruiting as hard as ever but have been closed to G. S men since I started. Did they enlist specially for one of my battalions?

Now I must go to bed. Please thank Violet [Violet Cameron, daughter of Colonel and Lady Cameron] for her letter.
