In 1914 he volunteered for the Worcesters and was sent to the 4th Battalion, a regular battalion. They arrived on Gallipoli on the 25th April but could not make sufficient progress on the peninsula. Fresh landings took place on the 6th August when the original forces, including the 4th Battalion. attempted to break out at the same time. It was unsuccessful and Private James Field was killed in the third Battle of Krithia on this day. He was 38 years of age and is commemorated on the Helles, Halesowen and Halesowen C of E School Memorials.
