I spent my forty-third birthday, 13 October 1945, in New York. I had just been released from government service, having spent my war in both America and Britain, first as Personal Assistant to the British Ambassador, Lord Lothian, then in the British Information Services and finally in the Political Intelligence Department of the Foreign Office, of which I had ended up as Assistant Director-General, my boss being Sir Robert Bruce Lockhart. My last assignment, as I have described in Special Relationships, had been to wind up the assets of this department in New York.
