In 1918 Adams was transferred to the Army Orchestra in Brussels, Belgium after Armistice. He was demobilized on August 27, 1919 in Quebec.

After the War, Adams resumed farming in the Chaplin district. He later worked in Shamrock, Saskatchewan as a postmaster, village secretary-treasurer and implement agent. He also provided first aid services to the community. In November, 1945 Adams moved to Roberts Creek, British Columbia. He moved to Victoria, British Columbia in 1971 and resided there until his death on January 13, 1992.
