Simon Murray follows paths the rest of us only dream of. After his adventures in the Legion, he became part of the team that set up the mobile telephone company, Orange. His own highly successful investment company specializes in Far Eastern futures and he has been a 'Taipan' for the biggest Hongs in Hong Kong. Murray's friends read like a list of Who's Who. He is the author of the book Legionnaire: The Real Life Story of an Englishman in the French Foreign Legion. An enthusiastic jet-setter, Murray has homes in the Dordogne, Somerset, Klosters, Phuket, Hong Kong and London.
