Bond of Rosemount

Commodore, Ian Easton, and Sea Lord, Caspar John, went down in their aircraft during the war. Both were on the Templer Commission. Ian Fleming served in Naval Intelligence, and was inspired to turn his experiences into a novel. He emulated Dashiell Hammet, and Raymond Chandler, two Black Mask authors.

For the reason a Mad Man creates chaos in the White House, and has broken a bond with Britain, it is my destiny to pick up the gauntlet, and continue the mission of these three men, these, true warriors and diplomats. Donald Trump has decimated the State Department, the FBI, and is dismantling the CIA. There is no response to the Russian cyber-attacks. It’s time to gather the three hundred and eighty five, the MOD Squad.

Son of the artist Augustus John, Caspar John was 13 years old when he joined the navy in 1916. He went on to qualify as a pilot and learned deck- landing skills on the aircraft carrier Hermes in the early 1920’s.

His coolness as a young pilot was demonstrated when he was flying over China and the tail of his aircraft broke. Instead of bailing out, he landed the plane so the cause of the break could be investigated.

In 1941 he was promoted to be the navy’s chief representative for aircraft development and production. He became First Sea Lord, or commander of the navy, in 1960. He retired in 1963.

From 1964 to 1971, he served on a commission investigating breaches of security in the public service.

The Getty family of the United States identify with George Franklin Getty and his son Jean Paul Getty as their patriarchs. In the 20th century they were heavily involved in the petroleum industry. The Getty family is of Scots-Irish ancestry of the Methodist faith from the patrilineal lineage, their ancestors having migrated to North America from Cullavmor, in what is now County Londonderry, Ireland.[1] Several members of the Getty family have lived in England, including Sir Paul Getty who took British citizenship.

Sir John Paul Getty, KBE (born Eugene Paul Getty /ˈɡɛti/; 7 September 1932 – 17 April 2003), was an American-born British philanthropist and book collector. He was the elder son of John Paul Getty Sr. (1892–1976), one of the richest men in the world at the time, and his wife Ann Rork. The Getty family‘s wealth was the result of the oil business founded by George Franklin Getty. At birth he was given the name Eugene Paul Getty, but in later life he adopted other names, including Paul Getty, John Paul Getty, Jean Paul Getty Jr., and John Paul Getty II. In 1986, he was awarded an honorary knighthood for services to causes ranging from cricket, to art and to the Conservative Party. His honorary knighthood would eventually prove substantive. A long-time Anglophile,[2] he became a British citizen in 1997. In 1998 he changed his name by deed poll when he renounced the first name Eugene and wished to be known as Sir Paul Getty, KBE.[3]

Sutton Place, 3 miles north-east[n 1] of Guildford in Surrey, is a Grade I listed Tudor manor house built c. 1525[1] by Sir Richard Weston (d. 1541), courtier of Henry VIII. It is of great importance to art history in showing some of the earliest traces of Italianate renaissance design elements in English architecture. In modern times, the estate has had a series of wealthy owners, a trend started by J. Paul Getty, then the world’s richest private citizen,[2] who chose to spend the last 17 years of his life there. Its current owner is the Russian billionaire Alisher Usmanov. A definitive history of the house and manor, first published in 1893, was written by Frederic Harrison (d. 1923), jurist and historian, whose father had acquired the lease in 1874.

In September, Ian got his third stripe: Lieutenant Commander. Admiral Godfrey was delighted with his choice. Finally, at age of 31, Ian had found his right place in life. In fact, Ian proved to be a brilliant liaison officer between Naval Intelligence and the outside world. Room 39, described as the ‘bridge of Godfrey’s ship’, was where men and women handled reports, signals and other secret material, which came in to the Admiralty.

Ian was not always cooked-up in Room 39, he did go on operations around the world during the war, giving him a taste of how it was to be in the field.

Templer Committee on Rationalisation of Air Power

He is best known for his defeat of the guerrilla rebels in Malaya between 1952 and 1954. As Chief of the Imperial General Staff (CIGS), the professional head of the British Army, from 1955–58, he was Prime Minister Anthony Eden‘s chief military adviser during the Suez Crisis.

    I was going to have my first Bond be around sixty, and have young underlings. But, then I lose young movie-goers.
