And here is 'Legend' Alex Halkett on the Aberdeen web site. They have definately missed this man from their war memorial. Oops!

The article mentions him playing for Aberdeen in the past tense and states he was playing for St Johnstone - that migjht explain why he wasn't included. I think the memorial only lists players and officials who were with the club at the outbreak of war.
