Camerons Rally in Lochaber
Unknown Newspaper 
November 7, 1953

Camerons in Lochaber turned out in force to greet their chief and his wife, Lochiel and Mrs Cameron of Lochiel, at a rally organised by the Cameron Association in Fort-William.

Mr F.S. Cameron-Head of Inverailort, chairman of the branch, called on Mr Alastair Cameron (North Argyll) to present the chief to the clan.  Then, one after the other, clansmen rose to bring their greetings from the scattered districts of Lochaber: - Mr Jack Cameron from the Braes; Mr Donald Cameron from Ardgour; Mr Angus Cameron, J.P. from Nether Lochaber; ex-Provost D. Cameron for Fort-William and Achintore; Mr Lachlan Cameron from the new village of Caol; Councillor Dugald Cameron from Corpach; Mr Sam Cameron from Banavie; Mr Davis Cameron from Muirsheerlich; and Mr David Cameron from Glendessary and Loch Arkaigside.

Mrs J. MacIntyre sang "The March of the Cameron Men" in Gaelic, and the chorus was echoed from every quarter of the room, while the toast was drunk with applause.

Lochiel, in thanking the people present for their welcome, touched briefly on the history of the clan and of their loyalty to the chiefs.  He ended by saying how glad they would always be to welcome Camerons to Achnacarry to see the relics of the clan treasured there, and concluded by saying, "We are very glad indeed to be back once more in the ancestral home of the chiefs of Clan Cameron."

After tea an enjoyable ceilidh was held.
