He enlisted early in 1915, and was a member of the 26th battalion, and went to Gallipoli, where he remained, to the evacuation, thence proceeding to France, where he served with, the forces for two years and two months. He was also sergeant instructor in signalling in England. Whilst on active service in France he was badly gassed.
