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.


I did think about that , and viewed the player profiles. Two made their brief appearances in seasons prior to the Great War;

Charles Neilson: 1910-11 to 1911-12
James Neilson: 1911-12

A very prompt reply from Aberdeen Football Club. They intend to add Alex Halkett to the memorial at some future point. I have asked them to keep me updated.

rgds.,
