I found the grave of 6745 Private John Cameron, 1st Btn Cameron Highlanders in Ste Marie Cemetery, Le Havre last Tuesday. He died 14/8/14. The CWGC site gives no details other than family details. He must be one of the earliest casualties. Does the war diary mention him and cause of death?

Thanks, Michelle

Unfortunately, the war diary for 4th August to 16th September was lost on the Aisne on 21st September.

Paul Nixon says he joined in probably late 1903 so he was most likely a recalled reservist. Maybe he wasn't as fit as the medical thought and he suffered a heart attack or similar. As they landed at Le Havre on the 14th another option is an accident unloading hte ship - especially the horses who could have been kicking out.

SNWM gives cause of death as "died", not KIA or DOW, so possibly from illness?

Unusually the Arisaig memorial has soldiers numbers listed too. SWMP link
