Thomas Cairns Livingston in Glasgow - 23 July, 1918
[The Oriental dress uniforms of the Zouaves, a class of light infantry regiments, were highly distinctive, originating in France and linked to French North Africa, from 1830. British Empire units, and American 'Zouave cadets' wore such uniforms too, the style fading out after World War I]
Tuesday 23 July, Dull depressing wet day. Agnes went down to Clydebank at night to see Jenny. I did not go out. Yankee soldiers beginning to appear in the streets to day. Saw the famous Zouave Band in the square today. Agnes home about 10.30 from Jenny quite cheery.
