First World War Experience

Charles’ Service Records did not survive the bombing of London in WW2 so we know practically nothing of his war service.  He was killed in action on 20th September 1917 and the following appeared in a local newspaper:-

“Mr and Mrs Camp, of St Leonards Road, have received the sad news of the death of their younger son, Corporal C. Camp, 26th Battalion Royal Fusiliers, who was killed in action on September 20th.  Mr and Mrs Camp take this opportunity of thanking their friends for the kind sympathy they have received in their great bereavement.”

Charles was awarded both the Victory Medal and the British War Medal, posthumously.
