Robert Lyon was born in Aberdeen on 14 September 1891. He was educated at Aberdeen Grammar School and Aberdeen University and gained an M.A. in 1912 and LL.B. in 1914 and was a Hunter Medal winner in Roman Law. He was Clerk to Messrs. Paul & Williamson, Advocates, Aberdeen, 1912-13 and then Clerk to Messrs. Dalgleish, Dobbie & Co., Edinburgh, 1913. Lyon was commissioned a 2nd Lieutenant in the 5th Battalion Gordon Highlanders in 1914 and entered the France/Flanders theatre of war on 3 May 1915. Having attained the rank of Captain, he was killed in action at Delville Wood on the Somme, on 30 July 1916. Having no known grave, his name is commemorated on the Thiepval Memorial. He was the son of Sir Alexander Lyon, Kt., D.L., J.P. and Lady Elsie Inglis Lyon of Queen’s Road, Aberdeen.
With copy of article from The Cairngorm Club Journal which reads
Another member of the Club has made "the.supreme sacrifice"—Captain Robert Lyon, of the 5th Gordon Highlanders. He fell in action in France on 30th July in the course of the" push " from Albert. He was
advancing at the head of his company in face of a
withering fire, and, though wounded,he continued to
lead, his men on,but was killed in front of the German wire entanglements. Captain Lyon was the younger son of exLord Provost Sir Alexander Lyon (who is also a member of the Club), and had a distinguished career at the University, where he graduated M.A. and LL.B.
He was studying for the Scottish bar, and, from his
brilliant parts, those acquainted with him confidently
anticipated that he would gain great distinction in
the profession he had selected.
Captain Lyon had been a member of the Club since
1907, having been admitted on the summit of Glas Maolon the occasion of the Summer Excursion of that year.
(See the amusing article on "The Club on Gas Maol" in Vol. V. of the Journal). He was then only sixteen years
