His career in the Territorial Army included nine years as OC 153 (Highland) Field Ambulance.
    He was of the fifth generation of doctors in his family, his paternal grandfather being the first professor of medicine of the St Andrews (Dundee) Medical School and his parents both doctors. During all his senior career in general practice Dr Stalker was a part time tutor in medicine, mainly involved with diabetic clinics at Dundee Royal Infirmary and Ninewells Hospital, where he was a clinical lecturer in the department of therapeutics. Dr Stalker, like his mother "Dr Jeanette," with whom he was in practice, was one of the "old school" and spent long hours visiting his patients’ homes.
