Joining the Army

Eager to serve in World War One, he applied to join the military but was initially rejected, with no reason given. It may, however, have been due to him listing himself as head of household with the care of his widowed mother. Undaunted, he tried again and on 15 September 1914 and this time was accepted. He earned his Aviator's Certificate at the R.N.A.S., Eastbourne on 20 August 1915.
