CampbellJohn2929Colour SergeantBSACM Rhodesia 1896 (1) Mashonaland 1897. Senior NCO of the small detachment of Royal Dublin Fusiliers that served with the Mounted Infantry in Rhodesia in 1896. This detachment comprised of two officers and 31 other ranks, under Captain A. J. Godley and later Captain A. F. Pilson. Lieutenant-Colonel E. A. H. Alderson, who commanded the Mounted Infantry of the Mashonaland Field Force, in his report to Sir Frederick Carrington, commanding the troops in Rhodesia, said: 'Of the non-commissioned officers and men I would specially bring to your notice the following:- Colour-Sergeant Campbell proved himself a valuable and reliable Colour Sergeant and did excellent work at all times.’ During the Great War he served with the 8th Battalion in Gallipoli from August 1915, and later in France. An officer said of him in 1914: 'The RSM, J. Campbell, was an old Dublin Fusilier and a typical example of the old regular NCO, quiet, impeturbable, knowing everyone and everything, exacting obedience and respect from all, without bullying, but by example and character. He had the most uncanny understanding of the feelings of the subalterns, and many's the time he has whispered a word of advice or warning about some hasty action one of us was about to take. He has never lost his Scots accent and I have often been amused at C. O.’s orderly room parade to hear him giving the advice in a stage whisper to the malefactors lined up, when the C. O. was approaching, Staund steady. Staund steady.
