A soldier stationed in the UK he was the goaltender of a successful Army side that formed the backbone of the British team in Chamonix.

He had strong family ties to the sport as his brother Brian played for Great Britain in the 1931 World Championship and his son, John Carr-Harris, played professionally for the Washington Lions of the American Hockey League.
