Lord Montagu: Zaphyrs to Paris

If you could fly your Zephyr to Paris for the weekend… why wouldn’t you? The late Lord Montagu flew his favourite Ford to Paris on occasion in the 1950s, and that’s pretty damn stylish by anybody’s standards. I’m talking about the late Edward Douglas-Scott-Montagu (1926-2015) rather than Ralph Douglas-Scott-Montagu, the current 4th Lord Montagu.
