When he left school, he ran away to sea ...or more accurately, caught the train to Dartmouth where he enlisted as a Commissioned Officer in the Royal Navy.

Leaving the army as a Captain, he joined an international security organisation, although it was more budgets and spread-sheets than James Bond and Pussy Galore.
