The best jazz and sausage and mash in Hong Kong, first went there when I was on Brit Det in '75 I think it was when the Det was based at Kai Tak. Managed one trip to Nepal during the det, memeorable for the Nav coming up to look out of the screen, say " Oh ,that's where we are "and and disappear back to his desk, a wind up I hope. that and re-fuelling in India an aircraft that used Lbs and gallons worked out with a spirit level in the cockpit with a bowser either side, one in litres and one in decalitres, just slightly complicated.
Normally popped in when going through HK west about or east about after that during my first stint as a G,E,, didn't get there so much on the second go on it!
