    Default The Brits Who Fought For Hitler

    I remember talking to a guy who collected many things German around 10yrs ago. I remember him telling me that there was a British SS division. I laughed it off and thought he was a crack pot until recently i found this youtube clip....

    What really suprised my was a 34min mark there is one of the soldiers who fled the UK and now lives up the road from me in kalamunda/Mundaring WTF!!!!!!!

    I know war is terrible but personally i would rather die either suicide or by the ememy then leave fellow soldier to die in pow camps then fight for the enemy.

    This side of the war seems either kept hush or pretty quite. I was talking to my girlfreinds grandmother who was talling me about the london blitz when she was a little girl. I brought up the British free corps and she looked horrified and was offended i even mentioned it and thought i was making it up

    Were the BFC any more traitorous than members of "The Right Club" (which was borne out of the former White Knights of Britain or Hooded Men and the Nordic League) whose members included the likes of the Duke of Westminster, the Duke of Hamilton, the Duke of Montrose, the Duke of Wellington, the Marquess of Graham, the Earl of Galloway and a host of other British Nazi sympathisers of the day who plotted against Churchill in an attempt to stop the war against Nazism in 1940.

    It was his pre-war friend the Duke of Hamiltion that Hess requested to make contact with in Scotland.
