After his discharge on 17 February 1916, he resumed work for NZ Railways and married Fanny Louisa Stratton on 25 April 1917.
James volunteered for military service at the beginning of WW1 and although his 'war' was brief, he will always remain a hero as he fought at one of the worst places to fight in WW1, and survived!
