From 1905 to 1912 Haynes held all Scottish swimming championships from 100 yards up to half a mile. He was the first British amateur swimmer to swim 100 yards under the minute. His record—59 seconds—was achieved at the Scottish championships held at Leith.
By 1915 he had migrated to Western Australia and that year won the state's 100 yards championship.
He was district officer of the Kalgoorlie Fire Brigade for almost ten years until being promoted in October 1943. His next appointment was to the Victoria Park District, Western Australia.
