The mother website The Long, Long Trail (see link in top left of the page) describes the 10th Camerons thus:

"10th (Lovat’s Scouts) Battalion
Formed in Cairo on 27 September 1916 from dismounted 1/1st and 1/2nd Lovat’s Scouts (Yeomanry units).
20 October 1916 : moved to Salonika and there attached to 82nd Brigade in 27th Division.
June 1918 : left the Division and moved to France, attached to Lines of Communication."

See Queen’s Own Cameron Highlanders – The Long, Long Trail (longlongtrail.co.uk)

The War Diary for the 10th Camerons, while attached to 82nd Brigade, has not yet been digitised.

Maybe when Kew re-opens, some kind visitor may get you a copy.

Kindest Regards,


P.S. Your typo should be 'Langside', Glasgow.

WO 95-4896 - 01 May 1916 to 30 Nov 1919 - not digitised.jpg
