Great War, Lieutenant I.A.R.O. 28th Indian Light Cavalry.

'At the outbreak of war he gave up his Indian Civil Service work and joined the Indian Cavalry, being attached to the 28th Light Cavalry, and taking part in a campaign "somewhere in Asia," which has not yet been divulged. His is only one more instance of the sacrifice of position and everything else for the sake of duty.' (Malvernian, Nov 1916).

Between January and August 1916, the 28th Light Cavalry was involved near the Afghan border to try and control movement across the border and prevent unrest, and was also involved in operations against the Dahmanis. Further details on 28th-light-cavalry
