Two days later, on the 22nd, he was posted to serve with No 4 Stationary Hospital, joining them in the field. He was appointed acting Lance Corporal, with pay, on 21st November 1915. On 13th March 1916 he was severely reprimanded for drunkenness. He reverted back to the rank of private on 6th May 1917.
