At the age of 16 Henry emigrated to Canada to work as a farm labourer. On the 7th September 1916 he enlisted with the Canadian Expeditionary Force and, after initial training, was sent in about March 1917 to join 75th Battalion 11th Brigade of the 4th Canadian Division at Vimy Ridge in France. It was in the final battle for the Ridge that he was wounded on Easter Monday 9th April 1917.

He died from his wounds on the 20th April and is buried at Boulogne Eastern Cemetery (Plot4, Row C, Grave 13).
