Reginald lived in Birmingham. He entered the war on France on the 25th July 1915. He was awarded the Distinguished Conduct Medal "For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty. When some batteries were being heavily shelled and a number of casualties occurred, he repeatedly led stretcher parties under shell fire to remove the casualties. Later, when several wounded men were reported to be lying in front of a position which was continually under heavy machine gun fire, he took out two parties of bearers on his own initiative, searched the whole area, and brought in all the wounded. He showed great courage and devotion to duty, and set a splendid example to all." Reginald received a SWB.
