Born 5 May 1912. Educated: Brisbane Grammar School; BSc, University of Queensland, 1933. His father George was Divisional Meteorologist for Queensland, 1908-1934. Worked as a maths and science teacher before joining a meteorological training course in 1939, having decided to become a meteorologist after the death of his father in 1938. Served in the RAAF Meteorological Service in New Guinea and New Britain. Officer in charge at Amberly, Darwin and Mascot. Senior Meteorologist (Forecasting), Sydney.

With this tradition of meteorology in the family, it might have been expected that one of my sons would have shown some interest in such a career. [But] this was where Mrs H. G. B. stepped in and declared with some firmness, that 'one meteorologist in the family is enough'. Harold Bond, 1967.
