Outside work, Bantick was a member of the territorial force, and was commissioned into the London Regiment in 1913. Early in the First World War he left his job as a teller at the bank's London Bayswater branch to go on active service. Lieutenant Bantick was killed at Givenchy, France, on 19 May 1915. He was 24 years old.
