Hubert proceeded to Hurdcott Camp to join the 14th Training Battalion at camps 5 and 6. It was whilst here, only a month after (19/12/16), that he contracted Influenza which forced him to be admitted to Fovant Military Hospital on 25th December 1916. Eventually returning to fitness an discharged from hospital on 1st July 1917, Hubert proceeded overseas to France on 24th January 1917 aboard S. Princess Clementine from Folkstone. After a period of training at Etaples with the 5th D.
