The HAC Regimental History records that, at the request of Brigadier-General Ballard, Officer Commanding 7th Brigade, ’23 muddy privates went into the trenches as Platoon Commanders… they were paid as Privates in the H.A.C. until the end of March when they were finally gazetted, but by that time some of them were dead…’ His Commanding Officer, Lt.Col. Ernest William Rokeby Stephenson - also since killed - wrote of him: ‘He was so willing and ready to do anything, so brave and keen, that we shall miss him very much. Although he had been so short a time with us, he was very popular, a gallant boy with all the courage of his race.’
