Many points will be rewarded to anyone that can work this one out: this picture at auction of the Duke and Duchess of Windsor standing in front of a Messerschmitt Me109 wearing RAF roundels and fin flash? While this could be a captured German fighter (it did happen), it doesn't then explain why the fin flash has got a Swastika on it? According to auctioneers Dreweatts it was most likely taken during the royal couple's visit go Germany in 1937. The photograph is expected to sell for £80-100 at auction.
