Norman R Campbell
South Melbourne Rowing Club (VIC) now Albert Park South Melbourne Rowing Club (VIC)
Norman Reece Campbell was a South Melbourne Rowing Club coxswain who also served in WWI.
The only recorded wins prior to WWI were:
1913 - Sale Regatta, Lightweight Maiden Four, cox - First
1913 - Bairnsdale Regatta, Lightweight Maiden Four, cox - First
He enlisted in February 1915, just before his 21st birthday. He was single whose occupation was shown as a collector. He had kept his weight low still coming in at 8 stone.
Norman suffered from tachycardia and asthma whilst in the military.
In 1918, Norman was wounded with a severe gun shot wound to the right knee. He was returned to Australia and no doubt suffered from that injury for the rest of his life.
