A Squadron-Leader in World War II, he served as a member of the board of the MCC—a body which oversees not only the club's sporting teams but also the operations of the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG)—for 45 years and was serving his first year as MCC President when he died. During this time, he helped to organise the 1977 Centenary Test between England and Australia at the MCG.
