Chamberlain's Hitler plane ticket discovered

    The plane ticket used by Neville Chamberlain to fly to Munich to meet Adolf Hitler in 1938 is being auctioned for an estimated £7,000.

    A faded ticket, dated September 29 1938, has been discovered among the possessions of the late George William Denny, one of the founders of British Airways, and reveals that Chamberlain flew to Munich at 8.30am on ticket 18249 on private airline company, British Airways Ltd.

    Hitler and Chamberlain met to sign the Munich Agreement – between Britain, Germany, Italy and France – when the European powers agreed Germany could take control of Czechoslovakia’s Sudetenland.

    Chamberlain believed the agreement would mean an end to Germany's expansion plans across the continent but a year later Hitler invaded Poland.

    The auction will take place at Mullock’s Specialist Auctioneers and Valuers in Ludlow, Shropshire on January 19.
