Lieutenant Martin enlisted shortly after the outbreak of war and received his commission at the end of 1915. Over a year ago he transferred to the Royal Flying Corps and was promoted Lieutenant in July. Ten years ago Lieutenant Martin, then a boy of 15, plunged from Garelochhead pier and saved the life of a boy. His courageous act was acknowledged by a public presentation. In July 1913, at a regatta at Helensburgh, he also saved the life of a boy who was coxswain of a boat which was swamped. On that occasion he was awarded the Royal Humane Society's certificate and also an award from the Carnegie Trustees. Lieutenant Martin was 25 years of age and was married over a year ago. He was educated at Hermitage Higher Grade School, Helensburgh and Allan Glen's School, Glasgow."
