  • I am the WW1 researcher for the Everton FC Heritage Society who are affiliated to the Premier League football team in the UK. We commemorate the men of three football teams called Everton who fell in the two world wars; Everton FC of Walton on Merseyside, CD Everton of Vina Del Mar in Chile and the former Everton FC of Auckland, New Zealand. David Campbell played for Everton in Auckland for three years and was the second Everton Auckland player to be killed. The first, Alfred Corlett was originally from the Everton district of Liverpool and this may be part of the link to the naming of the Auckland club. When I am on the Somme I try to visit the New Zealand Memorial to the Missing at Caterpillar Valley cemetery and think of David, his name is also read out each year at Everton FC's memorial service on 11th November. Not forgotten, Pete Jones.

  • This brave young man was my great uncle. So sad. Such a long way from his home in Northcote. Just thinking about him on the anniversary of his death what a sacrifice he gave - his life.
