A selection of rare items salvaged from Adolf Hitler's personal train by a British officer have emerged for sale 76 years on.
Corporal Horace Whitney, who was part of Field Marshal Bernard Montgomery's security staff, brought home a range of souvenirs including the Nazi dictator's cream jug at the end of World War Two.
He also got his hands on a small binder which listed the Fuhrer's musical choices to be played on a gramophone while on the train.
The music document reveals that Hitler was a fan of the classic composers Wagner, who shared his anti-Semitic views, and Beethoven.
Creamer Jug 'liberated' from Adolf Hitler's Personal Train by Corporal Horace Whitney

Corporal Whitney had been asked by Montgomery to locate Hitler's train in Germany as he wanted to do a victory lap of it.
While searching through the cabins, Corporal Whitney spotted the small white cream jug with a Nazi eagle on it.
The letters next to it, D and R, stand for Deutsches Reichbahn - and on the base is the number 241, which is believed to correspond with Hitler's locomotive.
The mementos, which have since passed into the hands of a collector, are going under the hammer with C&T Auctions, of Ashford, Kent.
