Sir Robert Hamilton Bruce Lockhart, (1887 – 1970), was a British diplomat (Moscow, Prague), journalist, author, secret agent and footballer.

His 1932 book, Memoirs of a British Agent, became an international best-seller, and brought him to the world's attention. This third book continues the story.

His son was author Robin Bruce Lockhart, who wrote the 1967 book Ace of Spies – about his father's friend and fellow agent Sidney Reilly – from which the 1983 miniseries Reilly, Ace of Spies was produced.

Excellent primary resource done just before the start of World War II, the last of its kind, the end of an era with the gran- deur and the squalor of the East and the tragedy of Western prestige. A documentary voyage to Sumatra through Negri Sembilan, Johore, Singapore, Palembang, Batavia, Djokjakarto, and Macassar.
