When the First World War broke out in August 1914, he was still living abroad and decided to join the war effort as part of the newly established Canadian Expeditionary Force. After being found fit for service, he joined the 78th Winnipeg Grenadiers and was sent for service overseas on the Western Front. His brother, Benjamin, was also serving on the Western Front at this time as part of the London Regiment (City of London Rifles). In 1917, Nathaniel was serving in Northern France during the time of the Battle of Arras when he was wounded in action at Boulogne. He later died from his injuries on April 17th 1917. He is buried at Boulogne Eastern Cemetery.
