Lloyd George's signed Hitler photo may sell for £20,000

By Rod Minchin

A signed photograph of Adolf Hitler personally given to former Prime Minister David Lloyd George by the Nazi leader is to go under the hammer.

Hitler gave Lloyd George the picture, which is dated September 4 1936, when he visited him at his villa in the Bavarian Alps at Berchtesgaden - just two weeks after the infamous Berlin Olympics.

During the 1930s Lloyd George was regarded as pro-German and after the visit the Welshman described Hitler in glowing terms.

The photograph will go under the hammer at Dominic Winter Auctioneers in Cirencester, Gloucestershire, on November 9 with an estimated sale price of between £15,000 and £20,000.
