He served with “D” Company and it would appear that he was in hospital on 19.2.1916, returning to duty on 27.7.1916. He was twice wounded, the second time on 20.10.1916, when in the trenches near Fourquieres, keeping him from duty until the 7th December 1916. In March 1917, the battalion was in the front line in trenches near Andover in France and at 5.15am that morning our barrage fell on the German trenches opposite. The German artillery reply came within three minutes catching some of the men as they started to move forward to attack the enemy trenches it was during this action that he was killed.
