Visit to Shanghai Naval Squadron

In May 1999 I accompanied Defence Minister John Moore on an official visit to China, Korea and Japan. Others in the party included Vice Chief of the Defence Force Air Marshall Doug Riding, and Head of the Strategic and International Policy Division Allan Behm, now Chief of Staff to Greg Combet, Minister for Climate Change and Energy Efficiency.

The trip was a bit of a nightmare, but it produced a few passable photographs.

One of the early items on the itinerary was a visit to Shanghai Naval Squadron, where the Minister inspected the Guard of Honour and we went on board a vessel that was in port:
