This photograph of Private Angus was taken in Carluke just prior to his embarkation for France.

Having completed his training at Dunoon, he learned that his HLI regiment were being held in reserve there. He volunteered for attachment to the Royal Scots regiment, who were leaving the next week for the front. Lt Martin also volunteered for this transfer.

He returned to Carluke to say his farewells, and had the photograph taken before returning to Dunoon.
