  • Description

    No title, paperwork reads - Campbell...with child.

    M/S of Malcolm Campbell holding a little girl in his arms, he gives her a kiss. M/S of him stood in front of his aeroplane, 'Blue Bird', a lady and a little boy in school uniform join him. These people are probably his family, and the boy is possibly his son, Donald Campbell, who went on to break speed records himself. Malcolm kisses the little girl again then puts her down.

    Note: for another item about this story please see 'Somewhere in Sahara' on *PM0748*, it contains some of the same footage.

We always welcome comments and more information about our films.

All posts are reactively checked. Libellous and abusive comments are forbidden.

  • Eliminating the current doubts in the main paragraph of the shots list, the little girl referred to is Campbell's daughter Jean, the lady referred to is his wife Dorothy, and yes, the little boy IS his son Donald.

  • "in front of his aeroplane, 'Blue Bird" - it's a de Havilland DH60G Gipsy Moth, Reg. No. G-AAAJ.

    More footage of Campbell and this aircraft can be seen in clip 748.26.
