On the outbreak of war Terry was transferred from the O.T.C., St Thomas's unit, to the Artists' Rifles, and in July, 1915, he obtained a commission in the 6th London Regiment. He went to the front in October 1915, and was promoted to be Captain last spring. He was killed by a bomb when in the act of attacking a German machine gunner near Flers.St Thomas's Hospital Gazette, December 1916
