By the 1930’s Alastair began publishing writings on his second passion, rock climbing, with Faber and Faber. His writing was notable for its unique humor and prose. When World War 2 kicked off Alastair joined the fight, quickly advancing to the rank of captain. He was responsible for a very notable feat wherein he managed to lead 600 men to a flanking position behind German lines in the Netherlands at night without the aid of maps.

By 1952 he was appointed an Officer of the Order of the British Empire. By 1960 he had moved to South Ayrshire with his wife Anne, the place where he would spend the rest of his days.
