He was said to be one of the top hockey wingers and “English Rugger” players in the Maritimes.

Colonel Bauld served in World War I as a company commander with the Princess Louise Fusiliers and in France as company commander with the 25th Nova Scotia Overseas Battalion. Upon his return to Halifax, Stan remained active in sports as a football and hockey referee, and as a coach for the Wanderers hockey and football teams.
