OF DONALD CAMERON very little information is obtainable in Sydney. He was born on 4th June, 1886, and was privately educated. He entered the Bank's service on 15th May, 1910, and was employed in the London Branch until mobilization.

Donald Cameron joined the London Scottish Regiment as a private on 5th August, 1914—the morning following Britain’s declaration of war. He behaved bravely under fire and when wounded in a wood near Messines. Struck by a fragment of the enemy’s high explosives, which also brought down a tree upon him, he was extricated with difficulty and taken to a hospital where he died on 15th November, 1914.
