In June 1916, he fought at the 3rd battle Ypres in Sanctuary Woods, Belgium where he was originally presumed missing and then believed killed on June 2, 1916 at the attack at Maple Copse. He is commemorated on the Menin Gates (Ypres) Memorial in Belgium, as well as on the monument in the Pioneer Cemetery in Oxford Centre.
