Bob,

Thank you very much for that - I understand form the limited research that I have done to date, that the Camerons lost a huge number that day on the Aisne.

Many thanks

James

James,

According to Ray Westlakes British Battalions 1914 the Camerons attacked along the Chivy Valley towards the German positions on the Chemin des Dames Ridge.

Had to move back after heavy fighting, casualties given as 9 officers killed, 8 wounded and among other ranks approx 151 killed or died of wounds with many more wounded.
