Herbert must have enlisted early in the war at Retford, as on the 27th April 1915, eight months into the war, he was on his way to Egypt with the Notts Yeomanry (Sherwood Rangers) Battalion. His military records appear rather sparse but we know that he died on the 16th September 1917 and that he was buried in the Kantara War Memorial Cemetery
