(Signed) Chas. Cameron, Adjutant, 71st reg.
Editor's Notes: Lieutenant
Charles Cameron, XXII Chief of Clan Cameron, recruited and commanded a
company of 120 men drawn from his own clan. He was in ill health when
the 71st was ordered to America, and although he did travel from London to
Glasgow, to join them, due to his health doctors forbade him to join the men
on their voyage across the Atlantic. He died shortly afterwards.
