He taught at Sind College Karachi (where he became vice principal and professor of biology and lecturer in English). During World War I he was commissioned into the Ninety-seventh Indian Infantry and after the war he went into the Indian Education Service. In 1927 he retired to Srinagar, Kashmir and travelled extensively in the Himalayas including Tibet and Kashmir. In 1929 he met George Sheriff while staying in Kashgar with the consul general Williamson. He later took charge of the British Mission in Lhasa from 1942-43.
