Sir: Words cannot describe the excitement I felt when I recognised a face from my past on the front page of The Independent (24 March) - Lily Wong.
My relationship with Lily began some eight to nine years ago. I, like Lily, call Hong Kong home and am the product of an East-West marriage similar to Lily and Stuart's. When I moved to the UK in 1989 my parents continued to collect the strips and kept me up to date with HK life and political developments. When Lily was ripped away from her public I had given her up for lost.
I shall be returning home for the hand-over and the next 90 days will be a fairly emotional time. It is therefore wonderful that Lily will be here for the duration.
