Biography contributed by Faithe Jones

Son of Wilson and Charlotte CAMERON, High Park, Kilmore, Victoria

Amongst those who fell in the Dardanelles -and they are unfortunately too numerous- is Sergeant-Major Colin Henry Cameron, the notice of whose  death appears elsewhere. The deceased officer, who was only 23 years of age, was physically a fine type of man, whilst those who knew him best  speak of him in most affectionate terms as a charming personality. He was the second son of Mr Wilson Cameron, of Heidelberg, and had his home at  High Park, Kilmore, for some time prior to his departure for the front.
