Indian Mutiny Victoria Cross Medal Recipient. He served as a Lieutenant in the 72nd Highlanders, British Army. On March 30, 1858, Lieutenant Cameron led a party of men in an attack on a group of rebels posted in a house at Kotah, India. He stormed the house, killed three rebels in single combat and was severely wounded, having lost half of one hand by a stroke from a tulwar.
