John Bruce-Lockhart was Headmaster of Sedbergh from 1937 to 1954 and one of the school's most distinguished old boys. He won a scholarship at Jesus College, Cambridge, and after taking 12 for 187 with slow legbreaks in the Freshmen's match of 1909, gained his cricket Blue that summer. Against Oxford at Lord's he distinguished himself by taking 6 for 96 in the first innings and 3 for 82 in the second, and he headed the Cambridge bowling figures with 49 wickets, average 17.97. In the University match of the following year, he was by no means so successful. Thanks to the all-round play of PR Le Couteur, who hit 160 and took 11 for 126, Oxford triumphed in an innings with 126 runs to spare. Bruce Lockhart's analysis was 2 for 72 and he was out for a pair. Also a splendid Rugby footballer, he represented Cambridge against Oxford at fly-half in 1910. He played football for Scotland, for whom he also appeared at cricket, against Wales in 1913 and, after service throughout the First Great War with the Intelligence Corps and being mentioned in dispatches, against England in 1920. He was a master at Rugby and at Cargilfield, near Edinburgh, before his appointment at Sedbergh.
