Born in 1885, he was a caddy on the West Links at North Berwick until granted a professionalís licence in 1900.
At the time of his enlistment in 1915 he lived at Preston Cottages, Prestonkirk, East Linton with brother, John, and sister, Ann. His attestation shows him as a professional golfer. The only oddity is that he attested in Great Yarmouth. Not a place you end up in accidentally but I have no record of him as a golf professional there. He was a gunner (S/N 69042) in the Royal Garrison Artillery. Shown as killed in the War Office Weekly Casualty list for 6.11.1917. Died of wounds according to his military record on 4.11.1917, and buried in White House Cemetery, St Jean-les-Ypres, Belgium. He is on the East Linton War Memorial as Alex Lockhart.
