He was commended in despatches in January 1917 for leading a successful attack with the Battalion at High Wood. Abadie was killed in Nieuport, Belgium on July 12th 1917, defending the northern end of the British line with the 2nd KRRC, who were part of the unsuccessful, under-supported Operation Hush.
