CampbellAlfred CorkramLieutenantHe was killed in action at Nooitgedacht, December 13th, 1900. He was the son of Captain Hugh Campbell, RN, formerly Commander of the Royal Yacht "Victoria and Albert", and educated at Eton. Lieutenant Campbell belonged to the Lothians and Berwickshire Yeomanry, and was gazetted to the Imperial Yeomanry, with the rank of Lieutenant in the army, May 1900, joining the 6th battalion in November. He was killed while leading and rallying his men to support a detached party which had been attacked by the Boers at early dawn. The yeomen had to climb a precipitous hill 1,000 feet high. Sir A Conan Doyle thus describes what took place. "One by one the yeomen darted over the edge and endeavoured to find some cover in face of an infernal point blank fire. Captain Mudie of the Staff who went first was shot down. So was Purvis of the Fifes who followed him. The others springing over their bodies rushed for a small trench and tried to restore the fight. Lieutenant Campbell, a gallant young fellow, was shot dead as he rallied his men. Of 27 of the Fifeshires upon the hill, 6 were killed and 11 wounded".
