Like most wizards and witches in Great Britain, he is likely to have purchased it at the age of eleven at Ollivander's Wand Shop before beginning his first year of magical education at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. He would have used his wand throughout his school life, and later during his career at the British Ministry of Magic.
He wielded his wand during the Battle of Hogwarts which he participated in on the 2 May 1998. During the first half of the battle, he transfigured Pius Thicknesse with the Sea urchin jinx, making spikes erupt out of him, causing the Imperiused Minister for Magic much discomfort and pain.
