In 1951 he became articled to Ronald Atkin, a partner in a firm of accountants at a wage of twenty-six shillings per week. He spent two years with them travelling the country with a senior doing audits, but found the long nights spent in hotels studying, weary and boring. In spite of protest from parents he decided to give up and do his National Service, but passed his driving test first.

January 1954 he was accepted in the Royal Corps of Signals and was posted to Hong Kong where he spent two years as service engineer with radio. He was invited to stay on as an instructor but said No thank you.

After a few months working as radio engineer for a local shop he got tired of clambering about on roofs fitting aerials. He left and rented a small shop, bought a small van and set up as television engineer with one man as assistant.
