He was the son of William Henry Vaughan, a farmer, and his wife, Elizabeth. The family moved to Westbrook Manor, Clifford, Herefordshire, in about 1900. Reginald and his brothers were boarders at Bridgnorth Grammar School.

Reginald emigrated to Canada where he worked as a motor driver. He joined the Canadian Army in December 1916 and served in "D" Company of the 10th Battalion Canadian Infantry. He was killed in action on 9th August, 1918 - the first day of the Battle of Arras - when the Canadian Infantry captured Vimy Ridge. Reginald is commemorated on the Vimy Memorial.
