Content: Typescript letter from George Kerr (Honorary Secretary) to members of the 6th Cameron Highlanders Reunion Club. Glasgow, September 1974.
Invites members to attend what is proposed to be the last reunion of the club at the North British Hotel, Glasgow, on Wednesday 25th September. It is also proposed that the minute books and other records of the club are to be handed over to the University of Glasgow to be preserved in an archive in the library, established by the Principal, Sir Charles Wilson. He requests members and relatives to send to the Principal any photographs and relics that they may be happy to part with for inclusion in the archive. An additional manuscript note made by Sir William Robieson at a later date confirms that both these resolutions were passed at the meeting; he notes that the transferral of records to Glasgow University was delayed until February 1975 owing to illness.
