Aviator. Born in Manchester, Alcock served in the Royal Naval Air Service throughout the First World War. He was stationed in the Eastern Mediterranean and flew numerous missions over Turkey. A courageous solo attack on three Turkish planes won him the DSC. He was taken prisoner in 1917. On 14–15 June 1919 he and Arthur Brown as navigator made the first non-stop flight across the Atlantic in a Vickers Vimy, a journey which took 16 hours 27 minutes.
