Joining the British Army, 25 September 1915

He was rejected at first due to weak eyes but he managed to find an opportunity in 1915 when chemical work was needed at the front. As an applied chemistry student at Manchester University he signed up immediately and began prepping for gas warfare for the Battle of Loos. He was killed when he was separated from his unit whilst acting as a sentry.
