Colin Campbell is not even listed by the British Olympic Association as a team member in Antwerp. However Harold Cooke is listed (as team member not as medalist), but born in 1907, he had to be a 13-year-old boy and he had to become a fencer later on to participate in the 1948 Summer Olympics and in the 1952 Summer Olympic.
