Is this Captain Ron Hardwick, a senior captain with Cathay Pacific?

Yes person. 

Thanks for confirming.

He wrote an interesting account of the early days of Cathay Pacific which makes great reading but difficult to find a copy.

 

Hi I would be interested in this if you ever find it. I'm his son Matthew. Best regards.

Ron Hardwick was married to Dorothy Coates, and my mother, Belle Reed, was her godmother.  Dorothy had a sister Helen. Dorothy was a flight attendant at Cathay Pacific and used to visit my mother at our Nathan Road flat before she was married. The Hardwicks lived in a house in Kowloon Tong on York Road at the time, next door to the Triggs family who lived at #1, at the corner of York and Waterloo Road. Across from the Triggs house was the large mustard-colored house owned by the Figureido family.  I remember Dorothy and Ron had a daughter Denise.  They eventually moved to Australia but Dorothy stayed in touch with my mother.
