Belonged to Drummond family of Tract Enterprise fame; Husband of Dorothy Marchand Drummond, who died of fever at Kuala Lumpur, 12/12/1914; Educated at Stanley House, Bridge of Allan and Loretto School. Formerly played for Stirling County Cricket Club and High School FP Rugby Club; Rubber plantation manager in the Federated Malay States. Killed in action, battle of Loos, 25/09/1915, age 28. Commemorated on Loos Memorial, France

He is also commemorated on the memorial within St Columba's Church, Stirling; his family had a long association with this church and his father, uncle and cousin, Henry Drummond (also a Lorettian killed in action) were office bearers.
In 2013 a photo of Campbell was unearthed by a distant cousin William Trewalny-Vernon of Kent; his name was on the back (luckily!) and the cousin set about researching his story; he offered the photo to Loretto School. The story was in the East Lothian Courier:
