Reginald Campbell, Teak-Wallah and Writer
An Illustrated Lecture by Graham Jefcoate, with Discussion

Reginald Wilfrid Campbell was born in Kent in 1894. After service in the Royal Navy during the Great War, Campbell signed up with the Anglo-Siam Company and became a forest assistant in the Mae Ngao Forest. Forced to give up the work by ill health in 1924, he returned home and resolved to become a professional writer. Campbell’s many novels and stories based on his experiences in the jungle – and his celebrated autobiography Teak-wallah – form one of the richest literary resources we have from the period.

But what relation does Campbell’s “fictionalised landscape” have to the reality of life in the north?
