During this time he was warded the Military Cross “ For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty. He led the bearer division of his unit for seven consecutive days during heavy fighting. He was repeatedly under heavy fire when rescuing the wounded. He has always set a fine example of courage.” He then became Physician and Neurologist at 62nd Casualty Clearing Station from 1917 and contributed the article on "Neuroses in France" to the official Medical History of the War. He demobilized in March 1919 and made the decision to engage in consulting practice in Liverpool, and was appointed assistant physician to the Royal Southern Hospital and to the Royal Liverpool Children's Hospital. He later became senior physician to both of them.

He was president of the Liverpool Medical Institution in 1939, and at the time of his death he was president of the Section of Neurology of the Royal Society of Medicine.
