Vickers, Son & Maxim, and at the Sheffield University, afterwards obtaining an appointment as Engineer on a Rubber Plantation in the Malay States, where he spent two and a quarter years, being then invalided home with sunstroke and malaria. After spending some months at home he accepted an appointment in the Land Valuation Department of the Inland Revenue, intending ultimately to return to Malay; but, war breaking out in the meantime, he enlisted in the A.S.C., M.T.

Buried in Heilly Station Cemetery, four miles south-west of Dernancourt. His Colonel wrote : " He got down to hospital, and I believe had his arm amputated and died after. He was quite. cheery, and our doctor said he quite thought he would pull through. It was a great blow to me, as he was a most useful officer," and a Captain in his battalion : I saw much of Paull, and he was an officer wnose loss we can ill afford; we were good friends. The casualties were terrible, and it is a depressing fact to realize that I am the only Cornish officer left of five who were engaged on the 18th." A brother officer also wrote : I was with Hal almost to the last; He went across with two platoons; after a rough passage, got into the German trench. I lost sight of hint going across, but he got in soon after MC. it seemed as though all our men had fallen, as we had a very little band around us. He was hit after he had been in the enemy trench about half an hour, I should say. I was about six yards from hint, and on turning round to see what I could do for him, just walking forward, another shell came nearly in the same place and knocked me out. . . . He was always the best of fellows, such a good-hearted fellow, and brave to the last." Unm.
