Australia Flag From the flag of Ian 'Meggsie' Meggs (Flagger since 2004)

I first succumbed to the Cricket Tour bug back in 1993 during an Ashes Tour. Since then I have toured internationally 13 times and covered 26 different Test venues. Captain Sparrow (Luke) came to my attention at the 1995 West Indies Tests. Since then I have always had great respect for him and his willingness to do the hard Tests like Guyana or Zimbabwe and lately Bangladesh.

While touring in parallel with Luke I have noticed the inclusive friendly nature of the people who travel The Flag way with Luke. Since then, circa 2004, I crossed over to Luke to get to venues other tours wouldn't go to, like Nagpur in India.

We started from Chennai going to Agra on a 30 hour "express" train trip. I knew about 2 people on the train but by the end of the journey I had 20 lifelong friends. We catch up at cricket venues throughout Australia each Summer and I am looking forward to Pakistan (another hard tour) and the mandatory West Indies Flag Tours!

Luke always insists on good behaviour and respect for our cricketers and the Australian Flag. We are ambassadors for our country and also must respect the cultural differences in many countries. Luke has a small band of "volunteer" lieutenants who all embody Luke's values. If you must misbehave you don't do it wearing Flag apparel on displaying an Australian emblem.

Luke's value for money packages are legendary. He doesn't seek personal wealth but just enough to get himself and the Flag to the next venue. In contrast other tour operators and officialdom seem to have been quite mercenary especially last Ashes season.

I have left the most important to last which is the enjoyment and comaraderie that is ever present on Luke's Tours due to his friendliness, good preparation, local knowledge and astute planning of each Tour.

"Nuff said!"
