Sat Nav



This is the satelite navigation system installed on the bonnet of my '76 Dyane 6. No doubt you've recognised the Ronis car keys as favoured by M. Citroen. This picture was actually taken in July 1984 at some point in an expedition that required much taking of wine and food - this may become a common thread. It is worth pointing out that I have run in the region of 25 Citroens over the years and no doubt some will feature in these pages over the coming months.

Ooh,a scrumptious monochrome delight. Reminds me of early Deighton jackets by Raymond Hawkey. Maybe Ou est le Garlic, except that's in colour.

I've had a few Citroens myself. A 1954 Slough built 375cc Deaux Cheveau. £8 in 1971, A 1968 2CV, a Diane Van and my last folly in that direction, a DS23 Pallas. You will be horrified to know that the I folded the 1954 one up with the aid of a scaffold pole and took it to the scrapyard. Nixon's in Appleby Magna, in the back of the Land Rover.

Come to think of it I'm not sure this wasn't taken during the planning of the daring raid on the submarine pens at la Rochelle.

I didn't realise that pens worked underwater. My Mont Blanc Meisterschuck doesn't.
