RELATIVES helping on the front line of HMS Illlustrious’ aid effort in the Philippines were reunited on the ship.

John Adlam and Keri Harris are brothers-in-law, and were both involved in the disaster relief work carried out by the UK after Typhoon Haiyan struck.

John, 52, is a field team leader for the Department for International Development, and Keri, 45, is the second-in-command of HMS Illustrious.

As reported in The News, the Royal Navy’s Portsmouth-based helicopter carrier has since left the islands and is sailing for home.

She is expected to return some time in early January.
