As we approach Hong Kong.. the chap on my left speaks..

As we approach Hong Kong, from the under carriage camera we see the sun rise above the horizon .. 10-44pm GMT and 6-44am in Hong Kong.

It was around ten hours into the flight I got talking to this chap on my left sat in 33C .. nice fellow.. I overheard him speak and thought ex military… and he was!

He’s travelling on to Sydney with his wife … another 9 hours to see his daughter.

Whilst chatting, he tells me that he is appointed by 10 Downing Street to organise the honours in Liverpool, look after the Lord Lieutenant and his deputies and to accompany members of the royal family.

Nice job! … small world!
