He was 19 years and 7 months old; was a Labourer by trade; and was living at 41 Shakespeare Road, Gillingham, Kent at the time. He became one of a quota of N.C.O.ís and men, known as 'Special Reserve', who previously agreed to serve overseas in the event of a war. On 6th August 1914, he transferred from the 1st Home Counties Field Ambulance to serve with the Expeditionary Force, and marched alongside Captain Greene, and the detachment, to a field adjoining Monocktonís Mill, Sandling Road, Maidstone, which had become the mobilization headquarters of No 10 Field Ambulance.

On 15th September he was sent to Base Details at Rouen, who transferred him to England with instructions to report to the Officer Commanding Depot at Aldershot. He then returned to the 1st Home Counties Divisional Field Ambulance and was posted to serve with the 3/1st Home Counties Field Ambulance until the 23rd December 1915, when he was released for munition work. His period of service expired on 22nd June 1917, and he was disembodied from service on 26th June 1917. He was by this time living at 187 Canterbury Street, Gillingham, Kent.
