He worked for the Foreign Office after the end of the war, spending time in the British embassy in Paris. He joined the Secret Intelligence Service (MI6), serving in Sofia from 1947 to 1950, but refused a posting to Hanoi in 1952 and resigned. After spending time in France, he rejoined MI6 in 1956, and was sent to Suez. He also undertook counter-terrorist operations in Cyprus. He was later British Consul General in Geneva, working again with MI6 in Cold War counter-espionage. He later joined the Security Service (MI5) before retiring in 1977.


Brooks was both the youngest and longest-surviving F Section organizer of the Special Operations Executive. (Sonya Butt was younger, but she was not an “organiser” (leader of a circuit, but a courier.) He was arrested once, in July 1944, and interrogated at Montluc Prison, but his cover story was sufficiently convincing that he was released. He ended the war as a Major, and was awarded the Distinguished Service Order, Military Cross, Croix de Guerre and Légion d’honneur for his service.


Brooks was rejected by MI9 and the Secret Intelligence Service as “too young”, but was recruited by the Special Operations Executive. He was commissioned as a second lieutenant on the General List (without Army pay and allowances) on 9 April 1942.

After training, he parachuted back into France without a gun in July 1942, landing at St Léonard-de-Noblat, near Limoges.


In 1941, Brook’s status in France become dangerous as he was likely to be imprisoned as a British subject. In May he fled his uncle’s estate and journeyed to Marseilles where he briefly worked with Donald Caskie and the Pat O’Leary Line and led a group of escapees to Spain. The Spanish interned him at the Miranda de Ebro camp for several months. He was finally released through the efforts of British authorities and proceeded onward to England, arriving there on 12 October 1941.


When World War II began on 1 September 1939, Brooks, 17 years old, was visiting his uncle Norman Brooks’ estate near Poligny, Jura in France. He applied to the British Embassy in Paris to join the Royal Air Force, but was turned down as too young. Working at his uncle’s factory he felt more at home with the working class and the servants than he did in the luxurious surroundings of his uncle’s estate. In June 1940 Nazi Germany invaded France and quickly overran the country and Brooks and his relatives joined millions of French people fleeing the Germans. After the armistice they returned to Poligny and Brooks joined his aunt Ruth in assisting stranded British soldiers and airmen to escape from France, now occupied or under the influence of the Germans. Brooks and his aunt sheltered the soldiers and on occasion accompanied them to Marseilles where the Pat O’Leary Escape Line organized their escape by boat or foot to Spain and Gibraltar.
