During his service he did a mix of education and intelligence roles at Whitehall twice, Hong Kong twice, Beaconsfield twice and other places like Ashford, Bordon, York, Salisbury.
He graduated from Staff College at Camberley. He finished his career as a full Colonel, always saying he would have gone further if he had been able to keep a straight  face when given a silly order or decision.
