Jock de Marbois first enrolled as a naval cadet in 1904 in England, and served with the Royal Navy during the First World War. He emigrated to western Canada after trying his hand at farming in Africa after the war, where he taught at a small rural school in the foothills. He moved to Toronto in the mid-1930s where he had been hired as an instructor of modern languages at Upper Canada College. When the Second World War broke out, he established and ran the Signalling Division at Canadian Naval Headquarters.
