Percy had worked for four years as an assistant at the Cambridge Asylum. In 1915 he took a job as a sorter at the Post Office. The temptations of the job were too great and in August 1917 he pleaded guilty to the theft of postal orders. Over £240 in cash was found in a search of his house but thanks to the testimony of the Rev G F Jackson of St John’s he was only given 2 months, after which he joined the RAMC. He was discharged in 1920 on health grounds.
