DescriptionDCM FOR AMBLE SAPPER Sapper James Pringle Campbell, of the 5th Field Co. of the Royal Engineers, won the Distinguished Conduct Medal at Givenchy on March 10. He took part in the storming of a German trench, and when they got to the German barbed wire entanglements, some of his comrades got into the trench, the other part had to retire, and in the retirement Sapper Campbell brought back a wounded comrade. Sapper Campbell's home is at Amble. This photograph was published in the Illustrated Chronicle on the 1st of May 1915. During the Great War the Illustrated Chronicle published photographs of soldiers and sailors from Newcastle and the North East of England, which had been in the news. The photographs were sent in by relatives and give us a glimpse into the past. The physical collection held by Newcastle Libraries comprises bound volumes of the newspaper from 1910 to 1925. We are keen to find out more about the people in the photographs. If you recognise anyone in the images or have any stories or information to add please comment below.
