He saw action in France from March 1917 but was hospitalised in June suffering from Gas poisoning. Returning again to the field,  he died from wounds received on 26 May 1918. At first he was buried at the Vaux-sur-Somme Communal Cemetery but later his remains were exhumed and re-interred at the Villers Brettoneux Military Cemetery.
