Campbell Miniatures

Mr John Burridge, owner of John Burridge Military Antiques, has donated the original medal miniatures of LTCOL Joseph Alexander Campbell OBE, K St J, DSM, after whom Campbell Barracks, the home of the Australian SAS is named.

John has also kindly donated a short sword recovered by Campbell from the field of battle at Tel-el-Kebir in Egypt in September 1982 when he was the Regimental Sergeant Major of the Queen’s Own Cameron Highlanders.

These items, among others, were purchased from a member of the Campbell family by John when he first went into the military antiques business.
