He proceeded to the Dardanelles in August of that year, and was in action at the Landing at Sulva Bay, and the engagement at Chunuk Bair. In February 1916 he was transferred to Mesopotamia, and rendered valuable services during the attempted Relief of Kut, and the later fighting. He made the supreme sacrifice, being killed in action in February 1917, and was entitled to the 1914-15 Star, and the General Service and Victory Medals.
