In the novel They Came to Baghdad, Harold is a friend of Lionel Shrivenham, and probably, like Lionel, one of the officials at the British Embassy in Baghdad. He is at the airport with Lionel to welcome Sir Rupert Crofton Lee on his arrival to Baghdad.

It is not clear if Harold is the same "friend" at the embassy who speaks to Lionel later in the chapter to tell him what "Scheele's Green" is (Sir Rupert had remarked that perhaps the illness of Thomas Rice at the embassy is a case of Scheele's Green).
