Biographical information

Biographical information

Contribute ›
    • Son of Alice Emily Pemberton Lockett and Hugh Stanley Barnett Lockett, of Symonds St., Auckland. Native of Wanganui AWMM
    • 'Among The Missing'
      Our Wanganui correspondents adds: I regret to have to record that one of our boys is reported as “missing, supposed to be killed.” I refer to R. L. B. Lockett, one of the first five that left the Easttown shops for the front. It is no mere figure of speech to say that a gloom was cast over the shops when the news was received. “Little Bob,” as he was generally called, was one of the most popular men at Easttown, cheery and light-hearted. His disposition to look at the bright side of everything would, we are sure make him as popular in the trenches as he was here. While the flag was hoisted to his memory the men stood bareheaded. Mr W. Cuttle paid an eloquent tribute to the soldier lad we mourned, and proposed a vote of sympathy to his relatives, the motion being carried in silence.
