On the 10th February 1915 he was posted to HMS Agamemnon and remained with her until November 1917. During this period the ship was deployed to participate in the Dardanelles Campaign. She made a number of bombardments against Turkish fortifications and in support of British troops where she took hits and casualties from Turkish shore batteries. Agamemnon would go on to shoot down the German Zeppelin LZ-55 (LZ-85) during a bombing mission over Salonica in 1916. After service at HMS Victory he was posted to HMS Excellent and transferred to the RFR in 1919 with his period of engagement ended in 1925.
