He enlisted in the Royal Air Force at the age of sixteen and initially trained as a Telegraphist.

Upon leaving the RAF he was employed for thirteen years by a large pharmaceutical company in a number of positions before becoming the Manager of Administration Services. He took early retirement and went off around Europe in a camper van for four months. On return to the UK he became self employed providing security and support services for major international airlines. Following his final retirement he lived on the island of Cyprus for seven years, the Italian South Tyrol for a short time before moving to France where he is now settled with his lovely French partner.
