While studying (science?) at the University of Sydney he obtained his plying licence and was then recruited by the Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF). He was sent to England for training and qualified as a signals specialist and electrical engineer.

Blomfield was a founding member of the Australian Psychoanalytical Society and the Australian Association of Group Psychotherapy.
