George suffered a number of illness – gallstone colic, eye trouble, neurasthenia, flat feet and epilepsy. These kept him from shipping out with the unit to Gallipoli.

On enlistment Roy was given the rank of Driver in the 12th Reinforcement of the 2nd Field Company Engineers. Engineers, also known as sappers, were essential to the running of the war. Without them, other branches of the Allied Forces would have found it difficult to cross the muddy and shell-ravaged ground of the Western Front. Their responsibilities included constructing the lines of defence, temporary bridges, tunnels and trenches, observation posts, roads, railways, communication lines, buildings of all kinds, showers and bathing facilities, and other material and mechanical solutions to the problems associated with fighting in all theatres. They embarked from Sydney on board the RMS Mooltan on 11 December 1915 and disembarked at Suez a month later. Roy had minor surgery on 14 February 1916 and was transferred to the 12th Field Company Engineers before joining them at Tel el Kebir in April. He left from Alexandria and disembarked at Marseilles on 11 May. During June to August he entered hospital a number of times unwell eventually being transferred to England with Lotar Pneumonia in November. After recovering he stayed in England on furlough and then was briefly attached to Depot at Pelham Downs before returning to France in March 1917. By this stage the unit was located in Abbeville supporting the troops well behind the front line. He stayed with his unit until February 1918 when he was admitted to hospital again, then re-joining his unit in May. He was on leave in Paris when the armistice was signed. He re-joined his unit and in February 1919 took leave to the UK and again found himself sick. He returned to Australia per H.T. Frankfurt disembarking 20 August 1919.
