Biography: Son of George A. Cameron, schoolmaster ; born Kirkhill, Inverness-shire, 2 April 1889 ; educated Royal Academy and Central School, Inverness ; graduated M.A., 1912 ; teacher at Cromarty, Pitlochry and Govan. Cameron joined the 3/4th Cameron Highlanders in February 1916 and was later posted to the 1st Camerons.

Though of a quiet and retiring temperament, he was a frank and generous companion and would assuredly have made a name for himself in his profession.
