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:
