Again like many others he was to remain there for three years and didn't return until 1946 a year after the war had finished.​

He was then demobbed and returned to the North East where he remained until 1959 when he brought his family to Calverton Colliery until retiring.

Bob received a 'Veterans Badge' from the Ministry of Defence for services to the country during World War II. He was very proud of this honour.
