He then joined Barclays Bank in Abingdon, Oxon, after a short spell in an accounting company in London he joined Glyn Mills Bank, which later became Royal Bank of Scotland. He spent much of his time in the bank either travelling to Edinburgh or Boston USA where he helped set up Citizens Bank. He retired at 60 from Head of Group Risk management. He and Penny enjoyed very many cruises and explored many different parts of the world. Colin was involved with Horsell community and was the Treasurer to the Scouts for the first May Fayre, he had previously been a Scout Master in Forest Gate, London.
