Andrew Sinclair was born in Newcastle-upon-Tyne in 1888, and enlisted into the Coldstream Guards on 22 April 1908. He went overseas with the B.E.F. on 26 August 1914 but was invalided home on 17 November. He returned to France in September 1916 and served there until February 1919, probably winning his Military Medal during the operations at Paschendaele or Cambrai in 1917. He was discharged at Victoria Barracks, Windsor, on 4 April 1929.
