Reggie's brother. .Hugh Campbell, enlisted with- the Canadians the younger son made desperate efforts/to he taken on the strength, but lack of proper physical condition defeated his purpose. So determined .was the young man, tlien-only about jsLS, to'lo to the front that his father supplied him with mon^ to go to England in the hope that he would bo able to join the Imperials. But; In England ng'am he was'disappointed, the .medical board turning �hlm down. Undaunted by two refusals of his offer to servo, the young man; paid his'way to Italy, where he succeeded in joining one of the .services of the Italian army. . . ; I-Io was -not in ihe'front lines owing to Ills physical .disijljility, but one^ day the opportunity came for him to' display the stuff he is made of. The Austrians/lelivered a very strong .attack in -ni'ass on a bridgehead, and It looked serious for the Italian defenders when young Campbell' and two Italian comrarles organized a party for a counter-attack.
