An attack by the enemy captured brigade headquarters and ammunition dump. Captain Gee, finding himself a prisoner, managed to escape and organised a party of the brigade staff with which he attacked the enemy, closely followed by two companies of infantry. He cleared the locality and established a defensive flank, then finding an enemy machine-gun still in action, with a revolver in each hand he went forward and captured the gun, killing eight of the crew.
He was wounded, but would not have his wound dressed until the defence was organised.
He later transferred to the Royal West Kent Regiment. After the war, Gee went into politics.
He first stood for Parliament as a National Democratic Party candidate in the 1918 General Election at Consett, where he finished second. He then stood for Parliament as a Conservative in the 1921 Woolwich East by-election against Ramsay MacDonald.
He was elected Member of Parliament for Bosworth at the 1924 general election.
He became clearly disillusioned with Parliamentary life however because he was reported to have been absent from his political duties for over a year at the time of the by-election called in 1927 after his resignation, having emigrated to the backwoods of Western Australia with no intention of returning. He died in Perth, Australia, aged 84. He was cremated at the Karrakatta Crematorium.
