GEOFFREY ROPER was born in Peterborough, England in 1937, a Year of the Rat, Geoffrey had an urge to roam, fuelled largely by tales of overseas Christian missionaries at his local Anglo-Catholic church. After education at King's School, Peterborough, and two years of National Service spent applying unsuccessfully for overseas postings, Geoffrey finally reached the East when he flew into Hong Kong on a Bristol Britannia on 22 November 1958, to become Probationary Sub-Inspector of Police. After retirement from the Police in 1993, in the rank of Assistant Commissioner, he has furthered his education by travelling widely, mostly in China, and obtaining an Honours Degree in Arts and Humanities at the Open University of Hong Kong. He contributed the chapter, "The Police Role in Magistrate Frederick Stewart's Court" to A Magistrate's Court.
