A desire to see something of the world prompted Jack Campbell to join the British Army. Jack tells Gay Byrne how he was influenced by his elder brother.

Veteran of the First World War, Jack Campbell tells Gay Byrne how he came to join the British Army. Jack was one of five brothers who fought during the 1914-1918 war.

Jack's eldest brother was keen to travel and explore the world and encouraged his siblings to do the same. For the Campbell boys the only way to see the world was to join the army.

Jack Campbell describes how he was encouraged by a recruiting sergeant to lie about his age so that he could join up.
