Biography: 

A former pilot in the Royal Flying Corps who has lost his civilian pilot's license, Jock is one of Faulkner's aviators who cannot stay away from airplanes. He is a tall, dashing figure whose stained clothing and unruly hair indicate that he doesn't care about his physical appearance; insomniac and perennially thirsty, he is emotionally tense and self-contained and won't accept offers of help from his former comrade-in-arms, Captain Warren. Warren thinks the strain of Jock's lifestyle is going to kill him: "You aren't going to last long," he says (195), meaning Jock will be in jail soon but implying something more dire. Jock is a clear forerunner of the barnstormers in Pylon (1935).
