Roos B 311 CD Mk VI DHC Roos Bernhard.jpg
Roos, Netherlands: At least this body on a Bentley Mark VI chassis B311CD, a Cabriolet apparently designed by the customer, Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands, and fitted out with a front that is more like an Alfa Romeo or a Lagonda. The car had the tendency to become airborne at higher speeds, and although the Prince had a pilot's license, this was not intended. It replaced another Mark VI with VandenPlas body which tended to leak. (This in turn replaced a 4 1/4 litre Drop Head Coupé by VandenPlas, bought secondhand in Engeland during the war, and still in the Netherlands today)

The NL-book-title "De Automobielen van Prins Bernhard" (160pp - published in 1997) has spent 4 pages and 8 b/w-photos with this 1947-DHC - text in Dutch to explain the first 50 years of it...,

... with greetings, FrankWo.

The last pics are of the car when it had been sold by the Prince, and it was owned in London. The registration was a personalised numberplate put on by the new owner who was very much aware of the earlier history of the car. It was like this the car was then being sold by the erstwhile dealer Simmonds in Mayfair.
