His unit embarked from Melbourne, Victoria, on board HMAT A23 Suffolk on 1 April 1916. After a period of hospitalisation in England he was returned to Australia in September 1917 suffering from osteo-arthritis in the left hip. On November 11th, 1917, exactly a year before the end of the war, he was assessed as medically unfit for service and subsequently discharged.
