The archive has notebooks and exercise books used by Dundas as a schoolboy at both Horris Hill and Eton College. It also has school reports, essays, ribboned lists and other Etoniana. There is also a scrapbook compiled of letters, cuttings and writings presumably created at the Front, letters sent home to his family, typescripts of the letters, printed manuals, guidebooks and handwritten notebooks.
