Dalwhinnie's Queen's Own Cameron Highlanders

Dalwhinnie's ""Queen's Own Cameron Highlanders" at the station in 1939. 2nd from left is Charlie McLagan. He was to be invalided out after contracting TB. He spent months recovering in hospital. Also pictured may be Jim McLagan, Tommy Kerr, and George MacPherson Poe. The 5th I don't know who it could be. Sad to say, 3 of these named were killed in action during the war and are honoured on the village Cenotaph.

This photo caught my attention as i am currently researching my fathers time during the 2nd world war.

The soldier in the middle does bare a strong resemblence to my father Willie Cameron with the date of 1939 fitting in with his war diary of leaving for Terry camp in Tain.

Also the 1927 Dalwhinnie school photo on the site has Jim McLagan,Charlie Mclagan and Willie Cameron(My Father)feautured in it which makes a further connection.

I do stress im not sure if it is indeed my father and whilst i realise it would be extremely fortunate for someone to see this and know it was him i do wonder if anyone could confirm it is not him and indeed someone else?

Kind regards Richard Cameron
