While serving a reluctant apprenticeship in his uncle’s engineering works he studied art at night school and became an art teacher before enlisting in the AIF infantry. He rose through the ranks to lieutenant and served on the Western Front before being appointed an Official War Artist, collecting relics and making sketches for dioramas and sculptures which he later worked on in the Australian War Museum studios and he was largely responsible for choosing and arranging the entire World War 1 art and relics collection in the Australian War Memorial.
