The Royal Garrison Artillery (RGA) was formed in 1899 as a specific branch of the British Army’s Royal Regiment of Artillery. During the First World War, the RGA was responsible for the professionalization of the technical gunnery, including the establishment o the coastal artillery batteries and heavy gun batteries. Over the course of the war, the RGA increased from 32 Regular and Territorial Batteries to 117, and 3 Siege Batteries to 401.

Adams was Mentioned in Despatches on January 28 1916, for actions taken on December 11 1915, noted by General Ian Hamilton.

Adams was awarded the Meritorious Service Medal while serving with the Royal Artillery attached to the Heavy Gun 9th Corps. He was gazetted on November 9, 1916 (pg 10933) for “recognition of valuable services rendered with the Armies in the field”. He was again Mentioned in Despatches on December 14 1917 (as a supplement to December 11, 1917).
