To James, Alec Campbell was a hero. The last living Anzac, and all the Australian and New Zealand soldiers who fought at Gallipoli, were heroes, everyone's heroes. Alec, who died in May 2002 at the age of 103, enlisted in 1915 when he was sixteen. He had put his age up to eighteen in order to be accepted by the army and to fight at the front, wherever he was needed. James was very fortunate to meet Alec and find out about his experiences. He gives us a special view of this humble and remarkable man, the year before Alec Campbell died.
