ANNOUNCEMENTS

1933

Henry Disney

has produced a new

book of poetry,

Come What May

.

Work on my Stag was also

successful, it drives (and sounds)

like a happy dream and now

we’re ready to go. Was it Henry

the Fifth who said, “I see you

stand like greyhounds in the

slips, straining upon the start, the

game’s afoot.” Hardly straining but

both car and owner are ready for

a bit of an outing, so how about

a 2000 mile challenge - a drive

from my Devon home to Lands

End, then to John O’Groats and

back home again? My son Henry

(another OD) thinks it’s a good

idea; he’ll be my companion,

navigator and co-driver. We hope

to photograph a few landmarks

on the way: Lands End, Plymouth

Hoe, Blenheim Palace, Bletchley

Park and a few other interesting

sights along the way. No, we

won’t be breaking any records,

just a leisurely ten-day jaunt from

15-25 June. We hope to raise a

modest sum for Cancer Research

James Stevenson

writes, ‘In

November 2012 I rescued a

very early Mark One Triumph

Stag, first registered in August

1970. The car was fit for the

scrap heap, so much so that rust

threatened to break it into two

half-stags. Restoration by local

specialists started in 2013. I am

also quite an early model myself

(1934).

In April 2013 my own

restoration started when I was

diagnosed as suffering from

lung cancer. Thanks to first class

treatment by NHS doctors and

nurses at Derriford Hospital in

Plymouth my condition has been

stabilized and I’m feeling great.
