Admiral Gordon Campbell, V.C.

Admiral Gordon Campbell won a V.C. while serving in one of World War I's mystery "Q" ships disguised as merchantmen. Campbell allowed a German "U" boat to approach his ship on the surface, then sinking it with his concealed armaments. He also won a D.S.O. with two bars and was held to be one of the most brilliant exponents of this hazardous form of warfare. A Londoner by birth, he made Boisdale House his home for himself and his wife Mary, spending his leaves there with her between 1915 and 1918.
