Doctor John Kinnear MacKay M.C.

Doctor John Kinnear Mackay M.C. played for Yorkshire county,and was champion of his home club( Cleveland Golf club) six times, He was its captain,and president,

Doctor Mackay was also made a member of the Royal and Ancient Golf Club of St Andrews for his services to the sport.

All this followed a distinguished war record
where Captain Mackay won the military Cross for bravery.

I personally remember Dr. Mackay with great affection.my first memories of him were in the 1940s, when our family GP Dr. Fordyce brought him to my Grangetown home, to introduce him to my grandmother, as doctor MacKay would be taking over the practice . He remained my GP until the 1960S when I moved to Redcar.
