      From Wikipedia:

      He served on the English side in the Second War of Scottish Independence and in France and Flanders during the Hundred Years' War. In 1341 he was made Warden of the Forest of Dean, in Gloucestershire, and Governor of St Briavel's Castle, the seat of the Warden, which offices he held until his death. In 1349 he was temporarily Keeper of the Great Seal of England, and in 1350 was granted an annuity of 200 marks for bearing the King's Standard against the French at Calais. From 25 November 1350 he was summoned to Parliament and may thereby be held to have been created Baron Bryan. On 1 March 1356 he was appointed Admiral of the West, a post he held till 18 July 1360 under Edward III of England. In 1361 he was Ambassador to Pope Innocent VI. Following the death of Sir John Chandos on 31 December 1369 he was made a Knight of the Garter. On 3 May 1370 he was once again appointed Admiral of the West until 6 October 1372 .
