  • Wounded in action, Gallipoli, 26 April 1915.
    Court of Enquiry, France, 3 November 1916, found that he had been killed in action, 26 April 1915.
    Brother, Neil Campbell, made a statutory declaration, 10 January 1921, in order to claim the medals due to A. Campbell: 'His father Neil Campbell died at South Melbourne about the year 1891 and his mother Ann Campbell at South Melbourne in 1915. The late soldier married over 24 years ago, but never lived with his wife. Her maiden name was Nellie Henderson. I have not heard anything of her since she was living in South Melbourne about 20 years ago. At that time she was leading an immoral life.' AWMM
