Lt Col. Mungo Charles Hamilton-Campbell

Born in 1912, the second of three children of Edith Agnes Hamilton-Campbell (née Angus) and Lt-Col William Kentigern Hamilton-Campbell. In 1937 he married Every Muriel Kay Finlayson and they had two children together. He commanded the Ayrshire Yeomanry like his father and grandfather and was awarded a DSO in 1945 for his service in North Africa and Italy. To quote his recommendation for a DSO “No dangers deterred [him], no hours were too long, his cheerful confidence and utter fearlessness were a stimulant to all with whom he was in contact” If you have any photos or information regarding him please contact me. Most of these photos are from the website however they are Stroma’s photographs and I doubt she would mind me using them here though perhaps I should ask.

Verification of this member: Most of these photo’s are his daughter’s, Stroma.
