Robert Buxton's career was effectively curtailed when he joined the Sudan Civil Service in 1907 meaning he could only play when on leave. He resigned in 1911, joining the West Kent Yeomanry on the outbreak of war and became a lieutenant-colonel in the Imperial Camel Corps, joining Martins Bank in 1918. He hunted extensively thereafter, becoming Master of the Bicester and Warden Hill hounds.
