Biography

Delhi-born Frederick “Robin” Lindsay returned to his father’s native Britain in 1933, where he quickly enlisted with the King’s Royal Rifle Corps. He had picked up the sport of field hockey during his early years in India and put those skills to use while attending Royal Military Academy Sandhurst, playing on the army team. He was commissioned into the Royal Tank Corps and served in World War II, earning the Military Cross in 1941 and a Distinguished Service Order in 1942 while serving in North Africa. He never lost his touch at hockey during these years and, following the conflict, he earned an Olympic silver medal with the British team during the 1948 Games. A halfback, he played in all four of the team’s matches. He returned to independent India in 1950 as an instructor at the Defence Services Staff College and was later transferred to posts with the British Army of the Rhine prior to retiring from service in 1959. He spent the next 20 years working for Vaux Breweries in Northumberland and finally settled in Oxfordshire in 1979.
