John Charles “Jock” Campbell was awarded the Victoria Cross in recognition of most conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty at Sidi Rezegh on the 21st and 22nd November, 1941.
On the 21st November Brigadier Campbell was commanding the troops, including one regiment of tanks, in the area of Sidi Rezegh ridge and the aerodrome. His small force holding this important ground was repeatedly attacked by large numbers of tanks and infantry. Wherever the situation was most difficult and the fighting hardest he was to be seen with his forward troops, either on his feet or in his open car. In this car he carried out several reconnaissances for counter-attacks by his tanks, whose senior officers had all become casualties early in the day. Standing in his car with a blue flag, this officer personally formed up tanks under close and intense fire from all natures of enemy weapons.
On the following day the enemy attacks were intensified and again Brigadier Campbell was always in the forefront of the heaviest fighting, encouraging his troops, staging counter-attacks with his remaining tanks and personally controlling the fire of his guns. On two occasions he himself manned a gun to replace casualties. During the final enemy attack on the 22nd November he was wounded, but continued most actively in the foremost positions, controlling the fire of batteries which inflicted heavy losses on enemy tanks at point blank range, and finally acted as loader to one of the guns himself.
Throughout these two days his magnificent example and his utter disregard of personal danger were an inspiration to his men and to all who saw him. His brilliant leadership was the direct cause of the very heavy casualties inflicted on the enemy. In spite of his wound he refused to be evacuated and remained with his command, where his outstanding bravery and consistent determination had a marked effect in maintaining the splendid fighting spirit of those under him.

Throughout recent years there has been an increase in the number of current or ex armed forces personnel suffering from mental health conditions such as PTSD. There are currently many ways you can support one another in talking about your problems, but here at Stirling Timepieces we felt we needed to do something to support the community further.
Stirling Timepieces will donate 10% of profit from each sale to Military Charities. Although this is the least we can do, we hope that in our journey to develop and grow the brand we can assist in shining a light on the ongoing struggle for service personnel suffering with PTSD. When you make a purchase through our site you are supporting the wider community, and our vision is to create a community that can come together and help.
PTSD is a topic that is close to our hearts and we have designed our platform in a way that we can raise awareness and financially support the community. Although we have worked tirelessly with our watchmakers to design this beautiful range of watches, we have also set up a channel in which we can support military charities through your purchases.
