Report from Maj. Thomas Campbell on Charles' injuries which led to death

Wounded during some very heavy shelling of our billets. He went out with our colonel to get some of his stretcher-bearers under cover and had succeeded in doing this, but, seeing the colonel wounded in the road, he went out again and tried to assist him under cover. Another shell then exploded. The shell killed the colonel and wounded your nephew in the leg and arm.
