I took early retirement after 30 years in the Civil Service and Diplomatic Service. Having spent a lot of my working life abroad, including serving as HM Ambassador to Angola, I am now very happily settled in London. I do various voluntary jobs, in particular Angola projects officer for the Diocese of London (C of E). Since retiring I have completed an MA in Military History by distance learning from Birmingham University. Academic study has changed a lot since my time at Newnham! And I do a lot of music, singing in the Royal Choral Society and playing in the North London Brass City of London band.
