A long shot for info on a 2nd great grand uncle of mine. Anyone know anything about William Robert Campbell, born Whiteabbey, Co. Antrim, Ireland in 1840. He was the eldest son of Rev William Campbell of Thurso, Caithness, Scotland. Rev Campbell and his family arrived in Natal in 1850 to found Natal's first Presbyterian church. I'm not aware of any claim that William Robert Campbell did serve in the Zulu War but it would seem likely that a man of his age and coming from a prominent Natal pioneer family would probably have done his bit for the 1879 war effort.

His elder sister, Jessie Lee Campbell married the Hon. Walter MacFarlane, Speaker of the Legislative Council of Natal in 1860. MacFarlane had strong ties to the Natal Carbineers. Campbell's younger brother was Judge President Henry Cooke Campbell ISO who in 1879 was a magistrate. His youngest brother was Inspector FA Campbell of the Natal Mounted Police and was on the Dartnell patrol from Isandlwana.. A younger sister, Isabella Campbell was married to Maj-Gen Thomas Milles, formerly colonel of the 75th Foot and who had been Durnford's CO during the Langalibalele affair in 1873.

There is a Supervisor Bk Sergeant W Campbell on the roll for the Commissariat & Transport Staff who was awarded the medal without clasp. Anyone know anything about this man? William Campbell was a forwarding agent for Somkele in Zululand at the time of his death in 1906 so commissariat & transport might well have been something he was involved with.

Cheers,

Mark
