The diary of James Lawson Cairns, 9th Royal Scots, transcribed by his niece Margaret Donaldson, covers the period 23 February 1915, the day the battalion left Edinburgh for France, to 2 December 1915, in the Somme valley. In particular it covers the Second battle of Ypres, where Cairns won his Distinguished Conduct Medal, and their time at Armentières.
