I'm curious: was this booklet produced in 1920 after the war? Was the battalion photographed before the war and the book produced later?

[Administrator: Sorry for the delay in response. I have now checked the booklet and I can confirm that it bears no date. This object was catalogued in Feb 2009, shortly after acquisition and, with sparse detail available at this time, the cataloguing team was required to estimate the catalogue 'early' and 'late' dates for the booklet publication. Their estimate that it was post-WW1, in the decade 1920, was incorrect and subsequent information obtained from later Cameronians' objects establishes a 1913 publication date. This year has now been substituted in the data shown below the image. Many thanks for your observation leading to a catalogue amendment.]
