World War I Victoria Cross Recipient. Born in Ontario, Canada, he served as a Lieutenant in the 1st Battalion, Canadian Infantry, Canadian Expeditionary Forces. During an assault at Givenchy, France, June 15, 1915, Lieutenant Campbell took two machine guns over the parapet. he arrived at the German first line with one gun and maintained his position heavy rifle and machine gun fire. Despite the fact that almost the whole of his detachment had been killed or wounded, he advanced his gun still further to an exposed position and by firing about 1,000 rounds, succeeded in holding back the enemy's counter-attack. He was subsequently wounded in this action and died four days later.
