H Van 60th Anniversary
Stratford-on-Avon

2.9.07

Something a little different - a big event celebrating 60 years of the Citroën H van. It was quite a challenge for us - it is the furthest our van has been without breaking down!

H Vans at Stratford-on-Avon
A total of 34 vans of all colours and sizes attended - here we can see five of them. In the foreground is a particularly early example which has been nicely restored to original condition.

The sign on the back of this van made me smile. All very true!

The pizza served from the on-site catering H van was tasty, but it is risky eating it in front of our van when I have my camera with me!

Apart from pizza, chocolate was available in all forms from this delightful van that travelled up from Dorset.

Apart from the "bog standard" grey vans which predominated (as they always did), there were some lovely examples in other colours - and this extra-long model with ze very Fwench lettering was my firm favourite.
