Wayne settled in Prince Albert, Saskatchewan and was commissioned in the 11th Battalion Canadian Infantry at Valcartier, Quebec in September 1914. He served on the Western Front, prior to transferring to Princess Patricia’s Canadian Light Infantry, 16 May 1916.

Wayne subsequently transferred to the 8th Battalion Canadian Infantry, and died in October 1937.

In addition to his service papers. In 1895 George was mentioned in the N.S.W Australian Gazette.
1st Garrison Division Artillery: - George Cyril Vivian Airey, Gentleman, to be Supernumerary, Second Lieutenant on probation in the partially paid batteries.
He resigned his commission in 1897. George died in 1919 and is buried in Fielding cemetery Manawatu – Wanganui New Zealand aged 41.
