Hi Steve,
Let me supplement your worthy efforts on WBP with the following to complete the picture:
Service No 95924 Intelligence Corps
OBE, New Year Honours List 1946
Forearmed: a history of the Intelligence Corps . Anthony Clayton. Brassey's(UK) 1993    page 85
"MI 14 was the most interesting and important of the sections. In 1940 it was headed by K. Strong* later its deputy commander was Lt Col WBP Aspinall of the Corps"
Closely Guarded: A life in Canadian Security & Intelligence. James Starnes. Univ. of Toronto Press 1998  page 11
"The commandant was Lt Col WBP Aspinall. In his late 40s he had a backgound in MI 14 (responsible for the German order of battle)

*Kenneth Strong (later DG of Intelligence at the MOD) was educated at Montrose Academy in Angus. I attended Montrose Academy from 1946 to 1953 prior to attending Windsor School.
Regards.
