His senior appointments included Commander British Forces Cyprus, Commandant of The Royal Military Academy Sandhurst and Deputy Commander of NATO’s southern command. He was the Colonel of the Regiment of The Royal Gurkha Rifles for 10 years and he wrote the third and final volume of the regimental history of the 10th Princess Mary’s Own Gurkha Rifles.

He was Executive Director of BSES Expeditions until August 2014. He became the 145th Lieutenant of The Tower of London in May 2010 and he is currently the Governor of the Military Knights of Windsor.
