Charles Walter Campbell Strickland

A carte-de-visite portrait of Charles Walter Campbell Strickland (1873-1918), seen here at the age of five in May 1878, according to an inked inscription on the reverse of the mount.

Born on 27 February 1873, he was the son of the son of Walter Kennedy Strickland (of the Stricklands of Boynton) and his wife Alice Christian née Campbell (of the Campbells of Milfort). The family lived at Sans Souci, a villa at Posillipo, which is a residential quarter of Naples.

On 8 June 1909 he married Constance Margaret Lorn Campbell, who, like his mother, was one of the Campbells of Milfort. The marriage produced two daughters. The younger daughter, Katarin, only died in 2014, at the age of 99.

Charles Strickland rose to the rank of Commander in the service of the Royal Navy. He was accidentally killed, aged 46, on 14 September 1918 while serving on HMS Wildfire. He was buried in Charlton Cemetery, Greenwich. His effects were valued at £9033.

Photographed by G. Arena of Naples in Italy.
