He was appointed Assistant Superintendent of Experiments at the School of Gunnery in 1904 and Deputy Adjutant General at Aldershot Command in 1909 before taking a post on the staff at the Staff College, Camberley.

As Divisional Commander he sought feedback from his officers (an unusual practice at the time) at the Battle of Passchendaele in Autumn 1917 and then played a crucial role in holding the German Sixth Army at Givenchy in April 1918.
After the War he became Chief of General Staff at Headquarters British Army on the Rhine and then, from 1919, General Officer Commanding 5th Division in Ireland. His last appointment was as Director General of the Territorial Army in 1923 before he retired in 1927.
