He was adjutant of his battalion from Aug., 1887 to April, 1891, and afterwards adjutant of a provisional battalion from May, 1891, to Nov., 1895. He served in South Africa in 1879, in the Zulu Campaign, and in the subsequent operations against Sekukuni, receiving the medal with clasp. He also took part in the Nile Expedition of 1884-85, and was present at the action of Kirbekan, and received the medal with clasp and the Khedive's star.

At the time of his death, he was; second in command of the 1st Battalion South Staffordshire Regt. At Tweefontein the Boers attacked the British force by moonlight about two o'clock in the morning. The enemy crept up without their boots on, and in the confusion which ensued some of our men killed each other. Two Boers who put on our helmets were shot by their own men. Major Williams was killed while rallying those under his command. He is buried at Tweefontein, and his name is inscribed on an obelisk which has been erected there in memory of all who fell in this action.
