Sieg Heil

Letters to the Editor, The Independent, July 14th 1996

Dear Sir,

I enjoyed the article on the unfortunate translations of the names of certain British cars that you published the other day. There is one which could be added to this list which was frequently told to me by my old jazz partner Conrad Cork. The literal German translation of the unfortunate Triumph Acclaim is, I believe, "Sieg Heil".
