At the time of enlisting he was accountant at the Crystal Brook branch of the National Bank, and since joining the service under his father at the Kadina branch in 1908, he has also served at Kooringa, Port Augusta, and Port Germein branches, and had experience in military matters with the Wallaroo Mines Company under Captain Gentles. While there he got his corporal's certificate.
