His medal card:http://discovery.nationalarchives.gov.uk/details/r/D1983360 shows he deployed to France right at the beginning of the war on 14 August 1914 which suggests he was either a returning reservist or an already serving regular soldier (there may be more to establish here).

You can download the war diary (just have to register) at http://discovery.nationalarchives.gov.uk/details/r/C14052864.  The action in which he fell claimed, among others, 61 men killed that day and took place in the area of Langemarck and Zonnebeke north aast of Ypres.
