When Yockney approached Cameron in March 1918 with regard to the Memorial pictures scheme, Cameron already held a Major's commission in the Canadian Army as he was executing works for the Canadian War Memorials Fund. Arrangements were made for him to carry out work for the British scheme in conjunction with the Canadian work.
Although the first idea was a 'Road to the Front', Cameron also suggested a channel crossing scene, but the former was preferred by the committee. The original plan was for Cameron to go to the Front in mid to late 1918, but he postponed the visit and finally went in January 1919.
The correspondence includes discussion of the question of the overall scheme of the memorial pictures, in particular horizon levels, especially the relationship between Cameron's and Sim's paintings, which were meant as a pair to hang either side of the Sargent ['Gassed'] (see items 19-21ff)
Cameron took as his subject the road between Ypres and Menin, although the image was a composite. He states (69) the title as 'The Battlefields of Ypres - After'.
Three further drawings of Cameron's were purchased from the Fine Art Society in 1925 (IWM:ART 4226-4228), regarding which Muirhead Bone, William Orpen, and Bertram Cubbitt were consulted.
Correspondence also discusses the possibility of Sargent's 'Gassed' being loaned to the Royal Scottish Academy, and various reproductions requests relating to Cameron's works, in particular correspondence with Paul Schmid regarding a German article (enclosed) about British War Art.
