A remarkable film of David Lloyd George's visit to Germany to meet Adolf Hitler in 1936 after which he described him as 'the greatest living German' has emerged for auction.<br />
<br />
The unique black and white 16mm film which lasts 20 minutes shows former Prime Minister Lloyd George and his entourage twice meeting Hitler and driving along newly created autobahns.<br />
<br />
The grainy footage captures Lloyd George with Hitler at a dinner party, him laying a wreath at a war memorial in Munich and the alarming sight of the Nazi and United Kingdom flags hanging together on a German building.<br />
<br />
The film belongs to a British historian with a large collection of archive footage and is tipped to sell for £1,200.
