Sir William Lockhart joined the Indian Army at 17 and saw action towards the end of the Mutiny. In 1864-66 he was
with the 14th Bengal Cavalry in the Bhutan Expedition and then as A.D.C. to General Merewether in Abyssinia.
While on holiday in the Dutch East Indies he unofficially joined in the Dutch storming of Lambada and was
mentioned in Dutch Despatches and received the 1876 Dutch Expedition Cross with the clasp for Lambada. He
served in the Burma Expedition (1886-87). Lockhart served as A.Q.M.G. to Lord Roberts in Afghanistan and
served on numerous action on the Northwest Frontier which is borne out by the 7 clasps on his India General
Service Medal.
In December 1898 Lockhart succeeded to the Indian Commander-in-Chiefship but became ill and died in March of
1896.
