His duties took him to India, where in the first decade of the 20th century he received intelligence training and himself became an instructor in that art in the years leading up to the Great War. During the First World War, he would serve in the Gallipoli Campaign, Egypt and in France. Surviving the war, he was promoted to the rank of Brigadier General.
