He was a staunch Unionist and in 1914, he surreptitiously supported British Army officers who refused to lead troops against Ulster Unionist opponents of the Third Irish Home Rule Bill in the Curragh Mutiny. He became a Unionist MP in 1920 for North Down. After 1921 he was Sir James Craig's parliamentary military adviser. On 22 June 1922, two English-born IRA Volunteers, Reginald Dunne and Joseph O'Sullivan, shot and killed Sir Henry as he returned to his house at Eaton Place in London. Two policemen were also shot as the volunteers attempted to avoid capture. They were then surrounded by a crowd and arrested by other policemen. They were convicted of murder and hanged on 10 August 1922

It was in the Peninsula that the regiment got its nickname, the Faughs, from their Irish war cry "Faugh A Ballagh" (Fágh a Bealach, meaning Clear the Way).
