Proposed book on the history of the London Scottish:
F.1 Correspondence between Capt. R.M. Robertson and Whyte, 1922-1925.
They do not like early drafts of the official history and hope that
they may be able to evolve something better. The last letter
from Robertson notes that J.H Lindsay, the author of the official history
The London Scottish in the Great War which was published in 1925,
has made it what I call wooden.
