In 1917 He was seconded for duty with the Labour Corps, as a captain, probably during a period of recovery from sickness or while convalescing from wounds. After the war he returned to work with his father as a mining engineer.

Henry Childe had married Ethel Badger of Clifton, York in November 1913.

With war looming again in the late 1930s, he enlisted into the Royal Artillery, but the record also shows that he left again in 1938, however, in December 1939 he was commissioned as a 2nd Lt again into the Royal Artillery. Six months later he resigned his commission. He died at Derby on 10th April 1947
