Cameron, Charles (1779–1827)

It is with deep regret we have to announce that Colonel Cameron, of the 3rd Regiment, or Buffs, died at Chinsurah, three or four days after his arrival there. Thirty private soldiers and many of the women and children, who proceeded with the Regiment, have also died. The demise of Colonel Cameron will be sincerely regretted by many, as he was a long tried gallant Officer, and a humane and excellent man.
