He joined the Royal Air Force, around 1929, within the Reserve of Air Force Officers. He decided in 1937 to join the Auxiliary Air Force at No.611 (West Lancashire) Squadron before being transferred to No.615 (County of Surrey) Squadron. However, he quickly renounced his commission in October 1938. He returned, however, to No.615 (County of Surrey) Squadron during the declaration of war. He left the unit on 20 January 1940 to join No.61 (RAF) Wing. On 19 June, he was transferred to the No.4 Ferry Pilots Pool. He’s presence is very reduced since it is reported to the No.10 (RAF) Group, from the 24th of the month. On 20 July, he is attached to the Middle Wallop air base where he appears to be used for air traffic control. The rest of his career is not known. He finished the war with the rank of Squadron Leader, then left the Royal Auxiliary Air Force Reserve of Officers with the rank of Wing Commander in December 1954.
