Brigadier Lorne Maclaine Campbell of Airds, V.C.1

M, #127297, b. 22 July 1902, d. 25 May 1991
Last Edited=7 Jul 2016
     Brigadier Lorne Maclaine Campbell of Airds, V.C. was born on 22 July 1902 at The Airds, Argyllshire, ScotlandG.2 He was the son of John Maxwell Campbell and Hilda Mary Wade.3 He married Amy Muriel Jordan Campbell, daughter of Alastair Magnus Campbell, 2nd of Auchendarroch and Evelyn Sanderson, on 27 December 1935.1 He died on 25 May 1991 at age 88 at The Airds, Argyllshire, ScotlandG.2
     He gained the rank of Temporary Lieutenant-Colonel in the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders.4 He fought in the Second World War.5 He was awarded the Victoria Cross (V.C.) on 8 June 1943, for his actions on 6 April 1943. "In the attack upon the Wadi Akarit position, Tunisia, the task of breaking through the enemy minefield and anti-tank ditch to the east of the Romana feature and of forming the initial bridgehead for a Brigade of the 51st Highland division was allotted to the Battalion of the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders commanded by Lieut Col Campbell. The attack had to form up in complete darkness and traversed the main offshoot of the Wadi Akarit at an angle to the line of advance. In spite of heavy machine gun and shell fire in the early stages of the attack, Campbell successfully accomplished this difficult operation, captured at least 600 prisoners and led his battalion to the bjective, having to cross an unswept portion of the enemy minefield in doing so. Later, upon reaching his objective he found that a gap which had been blown by the Royal Engineers in the anti-tank ditch did not correspond with the vehicle lane which had been cleared in the minefield. Realising the vital necessity of quickly establishing a gapt for the passage of anti-tank guns, he took personal charge of this operation. It was now broad daylight and, under very heavy machine gun fire and shellfire he succeeded in making a personal reconnaissance and conducting operations which led to the establishing of a vehicle gap. Throughout the day he held this position with his Battalion in the face of extremely heavy and constant shellfire, which the enemy was able to bring to bear by direct observation. About 1630 hours determined enemy counter-attacks began to develop, accompanied by tanks. Realising that it was imperative for the future success of the army plan to hold the bridge his Battalion had captured, he inspired his men by his presence in the forefront of the battle, cheering them on and rallying them as he moved to those points where the fighting was heaviest. When his left forward company was forced to give ground he went foward alone into a hail of fire and personally reorganised their position, remaining with the company until the attack at this point was held. As reinforcements arrived upon the scene he was seen standing in the open directing the fight under close range fire of enemyinfantry, and continued to do so although already painfully wounded in the neck by shellfire. It is not until the battle died down that he allowed his wound to be dressed. Even then, although in great pain, he refused to be evacuated, remaining with his Battalion and continue to inspire them by his presence on the field. Darkness fell with the Argyll still holding their positions, though many of the officers and men had become casualties."1,6 He was awarded the Companion, Distinguished Service Order (D.S.O.) and bar.1 He was awarded the Territorial Decoration (T.D.)1 He was appointed Officer, Order of the British Empire (O.B.E.)2
