Samuel was one of approximately 93 men who were transferred to the 10th Battalion Sherwood Foresters from the Royal Flying Corps [date currently unknown]. He was subsequently posted to 1/6th Battalion.

His Medal Index Card records that he served overseas with the Royal Flying Corps before his transfer.
