Remembering those who fought in the Great War.

Neil Campbell(CEF)

Tent maker born in Greenock Sept 15th 1884. SON OF NEIL CAMPBELL, OF GOUROCK, SCOTLAND; HUSBAND OF MARY WEBSTER CAMPBELL, OF 35 LYLE ST., GREENOCK, SCOTLAND. Possibly the Neil Campbell on St John's Memorial

 Enlisted Jan 8th 1915 in Edmonton Alberta.

There is no specific action that records this man's death. On the day of his death the battalion were on reserve at Tea Farm on the Ypres Salient, having just come back from the trenches in the Wulverghem sector which is roughly to the south west of Ypres. The battalion were also in the vicinity of Dranoutre where this man is buried. Whilst in the trenches they suffered bombing by the artillery and planes and also sniping. The bombing continued when they were in reserve. It is highly likely that this man was killed either in the trenches, going into reserve or even in reserve. The most likely would be the first two options. 

Buried DRANOUTRE MILITARY Cemetery, Belguim. Grave Reference I. A. 13.
