He signed his Attestation Paper on January 8, 1917, at No. 2 Overseas Army Service Corps Training Depot in Kingston, Ontario, stating that he had no previous military service, that he was not married and that his trade was that of Gas Engineer. Sherman embarked Canada on April 10, 1917 aboard the S.S. Carpathia, disembarking in England on the 22nd. Upon arrival in England, he was taken on strength at the Canadian Army Service Corps Training Depot at Shorncliffe. Three weeks later, he was struck off strength and posted to the Canadian Army Service Corps Reserve Depot on May 14th. He was at the CASCRD for two months before he was taken on strength by the 54th Company, Canadian Forestry Corps on July 15th, soon finding himself in the French theatre. He was with the CFC for the duration of the war. Sherman was granted fourteen days leave in the United Kingdom, from April 12th to 27th, 1919, returning to his unit in the field thereafter. Upon conclusion of his service in France, he proceeded to England and was posted to the Canadian Army Service Corps Depot at Witley on August 4, 1919, where he was struck off strength of the Overseas Military Forces of Canada at London, on August 8th. He arrived at No. 2 District Depot in Toronto, Ontario, on September 6th and was subsequently discharged upon demobilization on September 17th.
