He served in South Africa from 25 April 1902 to 7 June 1904, during which time he was posted absent without leave from 26-31 August 1902. He was subsequently convicted by District Court Martial and convicted of 1: ‘Breaking out of Camp. 2: Attempting to Desert His Majesties Service. 3: Losing by neglect his equipment.’ He was sentenced to 56 days imprisonment with hard labour and ordered to make good the cost of lost equipment.

He was discharged medically unfit on 18 June 1913.
