Tribute to Alex Campbell

We announce with regret the death of Alex Campbell, at the age of 81, who had lived in Andorra since 1971. His distinguished war service in the Spanish Civil War and in the Second World War with the S.O.E. in France and with Force 136 in Burma where he became a great friend of the Karen nation, earned him an O.B.E., M.C. and bar, Croix de Guerre with Palme. He was born in France, of a Scottish father and a French mother and educated in England. After the war he became a foreign correspondent for the Daily Mail, covering the partition of India and the foundation of Israel. Later he took up rubber planting and administration in Malaysia. Our sympathies go to his widow Noelle and their daughter Sarah in Andorra, to their son Patrick and his other son by a previous marriage in England.
