Personal History    
Family background uncertain. Around the time of the war, his parents reportedly lived at 6 Hue Street, St Helier, while he worked for J W Huelin the timber merchant.

Along with two others, he appears to have joined the Army in December 1915 - some time after the last official recruits joined the Jersey Company. While it is not clear whether his two comrades ever served with the Jersey Company, records indicate he did. Details of service at the front are limited, although a report exists that he was gassed. In May 1918, while still with the Royal Irish Rifles, he was badly wounded in the arm. His injuries ultimately proved fatal, he died in the UK and was buried in Jersey.
