Eric Birkett notes

A rolling stone. Farmed in Australia with a Sweet relation. Later in Burma,Nigeria, Fife, Soay (off Skye), Biggar, Methven, Comrie, Langbank, Leadburn. During war at Leith and Crombie (near Dunfermline)..very "hush hush"! Disastrous marriage in Nigeria to Stella Howangel. Robin divorced her after six weeks.

[PMS added: I remember Robin visiting us a number of time at Bentinck Drive. He was a full of life character. I think he was a gardener in Comrie when I knew him.]
