Alter twelve months in A Division, he was appointed to the Mounted Police, in which he served at Hayes for seven year's. He then came to Acton when he was attached to the local police-station for about fifteen years. Retiring on a pension in 1908 he obtained employment with Messers  Athawer. Son & Co.. as a caretaker. and he worked regularly for them until his last illness.
