On the outbreak of war he proceeded to German East Africa where he served through the campaign under General Smuts. The regiment then went to Egypt to recuperate. Private (Corporal?) Allen came to England in November 1917 for two months leave during which he visited old friends in Dover. In February he returned to Egypt and was sent to Palestine were he saw fighting. Later he was sent to France to help in the great offensive under Marshal Foch. In the first attack Corporal Allen was severely wounded in the ankle and thigh and suffered great hardship and privations before reaching a dressing station. He eventually reached London and for some weeks seemed to be making a good recovery but on October 5 1918 septic poisoning set in and he passed away.

Private Allen's name is the second on the headstone; above him is commemorated Serjeant Beckanovitch of 1st Division Serbian Volunteers who died on 9 October 1918. At the foot of the headstone are the words, "At Rest".
