As staff sergeant he was in charge of mobile workshops, was mentioned in despatches and awarded the Meritorious Service Medal.

On demobilization in 1919 he returned to Messrs. Stuart Turner and was placed in charge of the drawing office.

In the following year he was made works manager and joined the board of directors. His final position, which dated from 1934, was that of technical director. Mr. Plot, whose death occurred on 16th October 1948, was elected an Associate Member of the Institution in 1933 and was transferred to Membership in 1939.
