Biography

Uniquely, Alan Patterson won the 440y at the 1909 AAA Championship in a run-off after he had dead-heated with Lionel Reed in the original race. He also placed fourth in the AAA 440y in 1910 and in the 880y in 1912. He was commissioned into the Royal Field Artillery after passing out from Woolwich and was the Army champion at 440y (1909, 1912) and 880y (1908-09, 1912). He competed in three events at two Olympics but never progressed beyond the heats. Captain Patterson was killed in action two days after his 30th birthday.
