LG UltraFine 5K Display works with MacBook Pro (Retina, 15-inch, Late 2013)

The LG UltraFine 5K Display works great with the MacBook Pro Retina 15-inch from Late 2013. The Apple Support pages state it will only work with Mac Book Pros from mid 2014 onwards.

I decided to take a gamble and give it a try with my 2013 MBP given that the 2013 and 2014 models are nearly identical. To get it working connect a regular Thunderbolt 2 cable to a Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) to Thunderbolt 2 Adapter and plug that into the monitor. Speakers, camera and keyboard controls all work as expected.
