This is Douglas Joseph McIntosh Cameron, Gunner (No.110953) in the 188th Siege Bty. Royal Garrison Artillery. He was born on 4 October 1894 at 70 Summer Street, Aberdeen, son of Donald McIntosh who was in the mounted police, and Margaret Mitchell Cameron who came from Kincardine O’Neil. In 1901 Douglas aged 6 was living in the village of Kincardine O’Neil, though as a “boarder” in the household of someone who appears not to be a relative, and was attending school. On 22 November 1913 he married Helen Ann Dow at Tarland, Helen’s address at the time being Newton of Melgum. Cameron volunteered for service in 1915. He was then just over 21years old and gave his occupation as “tailor”. Helen later resided at Boig, Tarland and at Rose Cottage, Kincardine O’Neil.
