It's about 5 or 6 cm long. It's on the outside (north facing) wall of my garage about a metre above ground level.

Photo taken in Thailand near Hua Hin (about 12N 100E) in December 2014.

I've found it - it's a Common Rose Swallowtail (Pachliopta aristolochiae)

A few images on this page. http://flickrhivemind.net/Tags/aristolochiae,butterfly/Interesting including these two
