      'On the afternoon of 26 March 194.3 Corporal Campbell was leading his section in the attack south of EL HAMMA, Tunisia when strong opposition was encountered. In the face of heavy fire and with complete disregard for his own safety he led his section against dug-in enemy positions and was responsible for destroying at least four of them. The speed and determination with which he attacked were largely responsible for his platoon getting forward at a point where had they been held up the adjoining platoon would have been exposed to heavy flank fire. The courage and initiative shown by Corporal Campbell throughout the attack were of the highest order and his leadership was outstanding.'. (Source: The National Archives. Recommendation for Award for Campbell, Daniel. (Ref. WO 373/25/214). Military Medal. AWMM
