MEET  BERTIE

Ahhhh Bertie our spiffing 4 wheeled friend. The Citroën H Van is a light truck (or delivery van) produced by the French car maker Citroen between 1947 and 1981. He has since been converted to a mobile event catering van with side hatch. A total of 473,289 were produced in 34 years in factories in France and Belgium. Most of them were sold in France, Belgium and Holland. They were not sold in the UK in right hand drive! The distinctive corrugated body work was inspired by German Junkers Aircraft of the 1930s!

Shares the same speedometer and front lights as the 2CV!

Power steering for wimps..Bahhh!! It's a can holder for some jolly tinned spinach! Manual choke and toggle switches just like my old kite. Auntie Beeb on the wireless! 

The welded floor is strong enough to support cousin Lottie's dressage horse, in case she's desperate for a lift to the gymkhana!

The H van could not be sold in the USA due to the 'Chicken Tax'!  Don't bother to ask about that old boy, it's not important, it's a poultry matter!!
