After completing his education, he returned to Singapore and worked in the family business, and also spending lots of time at the RAffles Hotel. When war broke out in Europe, he returned to England with his brother and he enlisted in the Army. He joined the Cameronians thinking he was going to wear a kilt, but later found out he would have to wear ‘itchy’ woolen tarten trousers. During the training sessions, he fell and broke a foot, while he was in hospital, he met his future wife Margaret who was employed as a nurse.
After the war, they settled in Manchester.
He then continued to work at Arathoon and Sons from their Liverpool Office, working from India House in the centre of the city. This continued for a number of years, but then he decided he had had enough and went to work at Turner and Newall, Manchester. He remained there until his first heart attack at the age of 55 and was told to take things easy, he died a few years later having suffered another heart attack. Source: Family Tree of Jayne Arathoon
