Col.Dr. Campbell Mellis 
Douglas
, an Army Surgeon, Colonel, who was awarded the Victoria Cross for rescuing 17 soldiers from rebellious prisoners on the Andaman Islands and getting them safely to a ship under heavy fire. Issue - see http://www.maitland.anthony.net/campbell.htm On 7 May 1867, he manned a boat through dangerous surf in the Andaman Islands to evacuate soldiers who had gone ashore to investigate the appearance of sailors. He retired to Canada in 1882 and served in the North-West Campaign. Issue 3/1. George Mellis Douglas, born circa 1870, an explorer by canoe of the remote Canadian Northwest and a well-known author. (His adventures are told in "Lands Forlorn" published by the Knickerbocker Press, Putnams N.Y. 1914.) In 1937 he was living at Lakeside, Ontario and a snapshot taken 5 years earlier shows him, lean and bronzed, with white hair, standing beside his canoe "Alcyone" and strongly resembling my father and his brother Kenneth. 3/2. Lionel Douglas, who in 1934 was the Captain of the "Empress of Japan", the ship in which Chester and I and our 3 boys came from Japan to British Columbia in 1925. I do not recall of he was our Captain then.
