Two years later he joined the 2nd Canadian Mounted Rifles for service in the SOUTH AFRICAN WAR, where he was decorated for his bravery under fire. He returned to the NWMP, was promoted to superintendent and then, in 1907, joined what became Lord Strathcona's Horse. Named commanding officer in 1912, he took his unit to France in May 1915 and, because of his success, was promoted to command the 7th Brigade in December 1915, and the 1st Division in June 1917. After the war he was commandant of Royal Military College until his retirement, as lieutenant-general, in 1925.
