A Rolls-Royce that belonged to Field Marshall Bernard Montgomery and ferried King George VI, Winston Churchill and General Eisenhower between secret D-Day planning meetings has emerged for sale. <br />
<br />
In the throes of the Second World War the handsome Phantom III was the staff car for the British army supremo while he was based at Southwick House, near Portsmouth.<br />
<br />
In the months leading up to June 6, 1944 the 19th century manor house was the headquarters of the main Allied commanders.<br />
<br />
Montgomery would often send his chauffeur-driven Rolls-Royce up to London to collect the King and the Prime Minister.
