Sandhurst Military College

Ian, who was always somewhat of a rebel, was often in trouble at Eton for playing truant, driving cars and entertaining girls.  In the end a deal was struck between his mother and housemaster that Ian would leave Eton a term early in order to prepare for Sandhurst Military College, as it was then known.  However, Ian’s temperament was not suited to the life of a soldier and he withdrew from the college after a year.
