24 November 1914

The information on Duncan Campbell appears to be inaccurate, as the battalion was at the Aisne in September 1914. On 16 October 1914, the 2nd Seaforths were near Armentieres, 100 miles to the north.
Private Campbell was wounded in action but succumbed to his injuries after transfer to hospital in England. 

I do not have access to his service record at present.

Son of Donald Campbell, of Kirkland Lake, Ontario, Canada; husband of Christina Campbell, of 6, Broker
