Letter from Walter Matheson 1916
Letter from Walter Matheson 1916

Photocopy of a letter written from the Seaforth Highlanders camp at Ripon, April 20th 1916. It is signed Waltie, and the name Walter Matheson appears to have been written at the top of the letter at a later date. Talks about conditions at the camp, training, and people's views of the war.

Sadly, Pte. Matheson was killed in action in France, almost certainly at Beaumont Hamel, on 13th November 1916.

Many thanks for your comment. More images of Walter Matheson can be accessed on the image library by searching his name. He was an excellent golfer - Administrator
