Ernest appears to have had various jobs as on different forms in his service record his occupation is variously stated as watch repairer or mill hand or woollen spinner. He enlisted on 15th January 1916, aged 20 years and 30 days, and was then sent to the army reserve. On 2nd March 1916 he was mobilized and posted to the King’s Own Yorkshire Light Infantry (KOYLI). Whilst with the 1st/5th Battalion of the KOYLI he served two periods in France. On 22nd July 1917 he was admitted to 141st Field Ambulance and it appears a short time later he was classed as no longer fit for war service.
