Historical Documents: The Munich Agreement
1938 (28 September) the British Airways Ltd. flight ticket for, "The Rt. Hon. Neville Chamberlain", completed in pencil capitals for the flights London to Munich and return. The first flight was scheduled to take off at 08.30 from Heston and the box for the price is marked "Special Flight". On landing back at Heston, the Prime Minister was met by a large contingent of the press.
This is the top copy of ticket BA/WS "18249" which is self-carbonated. Included with this is a manila envelope marked "The Prime Minister's ticket on his last visit to Munich at which an agreement with Hitler was reached. 29.9.38". This was in the papers of George William Denny, one of the founders of British Airways. There were only two pages to these tickets (the under half was sold by Christie's in 1992).
This was one of the most significant and iconic moments in twentieth century British and European history.Subject to 20% VAT on Buyer’s Premium. For more information please view Terms and Conditions for Buyers.
