     William was born on 8 March 1893 in Newcastle, Clarke Twp., Durham County, Ontario, CanadaG, according to Ontario Birth Registration 022551.1,2,3,4 He died on 12 June 1917 in FranceG at age 24 just one day after becoming a Flying Officer.

His service file notes:
Reported from G.H.Q. KILLED IN ACTION:-12-6-17
It has been now ascertained that this officer was brought into No. 39 Stationery Hospital
Later Diagnosis: "DEAD, MULTIPLE WOUNDS."

I (Rick Moffat) speculate that his role as observer was related to his experience in the Signal Corps.1,4 He was buried in Aire Communal Cemetery, Pas de Calais, France.5

     He also went by the name of Eric.3
Canadian Military Service:
     Pte Spr William Eric Lockhart began military service on 21 January 1915 in Ottawa, Carleton County, Ontario, CanadaG. One form in his service file notes that he enlisted Nov 12, 1914. His medical examination occurred in Ottawa in Dec. 1914, joining the 2nd Divisional Signal Company, No. 184.

He arrived in the United Kingdom on May 24, 1915 on the S.S. Megantic. He embarked for France September 14, 1915.

Eric was in hospital a couple of times and was invalided to England Dec. 15, 1915 where he joined (taken on strength) the Canadian Engineers (C.E.) Training Depot.. He listed his next-of-kin as Mrs W T Lockhart on his Attestation (enlistment) papers.1,6,7 On 20 May 1916 in Shorncliffe Army Camp, Kent, EnglandG, he was promoted to sergeant, having risen through the ranks of Lance Corporal (Dec 15, 1915 in one record and Mar. 2, 1916 in another), 2nd Corporal (Apr 19, 1916) and Corporal (May 5, 1916.)1 Between 13 November 1916 and 18 May 1917 in Crowborough Camp, Sussex, EnglandG, he was cycled "On Command" and "Off Command" but I'm not sure what that entailed.

By Mar 19, 1917 he had been appointed a Provisional Lieutenant, and on May 18, 1917 he was appointed Temporary Lieutenant.

Finally, he was transferred to the Royal Flying Corp (R.F.C.) on April 15, 1917, and he was seconded for duty with the R.F.C on June 11, 1917. He was "To be Flying Officer, (Observer)" with seniority from June 4, 1917.

In another document in his service file, it reports that he had been posted to France as a reinforcement to the R.F.C. on June 3, and attached to the 100 Squadron on June 4, 1917.1

The following biographical information appeared in the book the "University of Toronto / Roll of Service 1914-1918", 1921:
WILLIAM ERIC LOCKHART Mar. 8, 1893 – June 12, 1917

Lieutenant, Canadian Engineers, Signals, and Royal Flying Corps. Son of the late W. T. Lockhard (sic), M.P.P; b. Newcastle; ed. Newcastle P.S. and H.S.,Bowmanville H.S; Applied Science 1911-15, B.A.SC. (Civ. Eng.); Psi Delta Psi.

In November 1914 he enlisted in the 2nd Divisional Signal Company of the Canadian Engineer, In which he was later promoted Sergeant, and went overseas in May 1915. He went to France with this unit in September, and served at the front, mostly in the Ypres area, till December when he was invalided with pleurisy and remained in England for several months. In February 1917 he received his commission in the Engineers, and shortly afterwards was seconded to the R. Flying Corps.
