2nd Lieutenant Colin Keith Dufferin (Mackenzie) Campbell (Hampden House 1910–1912)
Colin Campbell (also known as Mackenzie) was born on 13 September 1897 in Calcutta, India. He was the son of Leslie S. Campbell, Personal Assistant to Chief of Staff, India, and his wife Mary. There are few records of Campbell’s time at the College or his career thereafter. However, it seems likely that between 1912 and 1914 he emigrated to Australia because he joined the Australian forces during the war.
He received a commission in the 58th Australian Battalion, AIF, which in 1918 formed part of 15th Brigade, 5th Australian Division. Campbell died of wounds sustained in the Battle of St Quentin, an engagement during the final offensive of the war, on September 30th 1918.
His grave is in the Tincourt New British Cemetery, Peronne, France.
