I think another brother was 9225 Joseph Campbell, machine gunner, Irish Guards, born c.1879. Address: 12, Eugene St, Dublin. - https://search.ancestry.co.uk/cgi-bin/sse.dll?indiv=1&dbid=1114&h=180388&tid=&pid=&queryId=6d846228d9f951f68af65e2d87173120&usePUB=true&_phsrc=kqC3726&_phstart=successSource

Also, I believe the last brother is 5592 Cpl Michael William Campbell, RCHA, address 12 Eugene St, Dublin - https://central.bac-lac.gc.ca/.item/?op=pdf&app=CEF&id=B1449-S026

Chum Jack Campbell served with the Royal Army Medical Corps, attached 1st Battalion, The Black Watch in 1914. He is recorded on the roll of Chums who were present at a lunch held at the Royal Hospital Chelsea by the London and South East Area of The Old Contemptibles' Association on 7 July 1988 and was introduced to HM Queen Elizabeth, The Queen Mother. There are a number of articles available on the British Newspaper Archive website reporting his meeting the Patron-in-Chief of the Association in 1988.
