William Joyce, who was "Lord Haw-Haw" to British wartime listeners, now silenced and under arrest, lies in an ambulance under armed guard before being taken from British Second Army Headquarters to a hospital.
28 May 45: Brooklyn-born William Joyce, the German propagandist whose radio broadcasts to Britain during the war earned him the nickname "Lord Haw-Haw" is captured by British troops. He will be hanged by the British as a traitor in 1946, being taken to owe allegiance to the UK by his possession of a British passport, a document to which, ironically, he was not entitled. He will become the last person to be executed in Britain for an act of treason. #WWII
