Market stall find of the week: Monte Carlo or Bust, with illustrations by the very great Ronald Searle, including so many depictions of Terry-Thomas it's hard to avoid the conclusion that Mr S particularly enjoyed drawing him.

So is the driver Eric Sykes? And was this the one with Pete and Dud in it? If so, I'd like to an illustration uploaded forthwith!

I have consulted my good friend, cinephile and ex-England and Hampshire cricketer I.M.D.B. Dotcom, and he confirms that you are correct on every count. I shall scan and post another drawing or two in due course.
