Adrian Turner saw overseas service with the Royal New Zealand Air Force during World War 2. On his return to civilian life he obtained a Master of Arts Degree from Auckland University.

In 1968 he took a senior post in the Monash University Library, Melbourne, Australia, from which he retired in 1986.

In 1956 he became the Correspondence Chess Champion of New Zealand. In his four appearances in the New Zealand Championship from 1951 to 1957 he finished equal second twice and third twice. In 1952 he was the umpire for the match in Auckland between Cecil Purdy, the Australian champion and Ortvin Sarapu, the New Zealand champion for the Championship of Australasia, which ended in a 5-5 tie.

For a period in the nineties he was the Deputy President of the Australian Chess Federation.
