The 2nd Camerons were part of the new Fifth Army Corps, and this had little share in the Battle of Neuve Chapelle. Perhaps this was just as well, for the men were fresh and their ranks were full when the Germans made their second desperate attack on Ypres in April and May. When this battle began, the Camerons, in the 81st Brigade and the 27th Division, were in some trenches near " Kill 60," the hill that was no hill, and there they were when a green vapour the new poison gas was blown slowly towards the British lines. In the early days of May the battalion's fiercest fighting was around Hooge, where the Germans used poison gas to help them. On the nth, for instance, two companies were driven from their trenches, but Captain R. L. McCall rallied the men, and in three counter-attacks drove out the Germans at the point of the bayonet. On the previous day Sergeant A. G. Douglas had taken command of a company which had lost all its officers, and had so heartened the men that they stuck to their trench in spite of the enemy's determination to have it at all costs.
