He was commissioned 13 July 1940, and appointed without pay and allowances (indicating working for Military Intelligence).
Johnson's SOE file reports he was only with SOE 15 Aug 1941 - 21 Aug 1941 with no explanation given. The file does say that he was with Lord Bearsted at MI6 for a short while (which may indicate early involvement with the Special Duties Branch which was under Lord Bearsted or the Home Defence Organisation).
