William had previously worked in the shoe thread factory as a bobbin carrier. He began training at Halton camp, Tring in October 1915.

In January 1915, he wrote home from the front, saying: "I wish to thank the Barnard Castle War Emergency Committee for their kindness in sending the grand parcel for my Christmas gift, although it was very late in arriving. I would like to thank Mr J. I. Dawson for getting our names."
