Cameron Highlanders return to site of a Concentration Camp in the Netherlands

Today's Scotsman has a story about a party of Cameron Highlanders returning to the Dutch town of Vught. In 1944 they liberated the town and were the first Allied troops in North-West Europe to come across a concentration camp.

The full story is here.

From the description of the other units involved I think they were serving in the 5th Bn Queen's Own Cameron Highlanders in 152 Brigade, 51st Highland Division.
