He personally played a vital role in the victory over the Italians at Bardia and he was prominent in the battle to capture Tobruk. In December 1941, he was promoted to brigadier and took over the command of the 25th Brigade.

In New Guinea, he led that Brigade and the critical and  highly contentious battles at Iorbaiwa and Imita Ridge. His troops then spearheaded the recapture of the KOKODA track. Followed by the bloody fighting at Gona.
