13th May 1941: Rudolph Hess in Scotland

Much talk all over the place about Rudolph Hess, the Deputy Fuhrer, flying to Scotland on Saturday night. Some rumours connect his arrival with the arrest of the Scottish Nationalists on Friday. Others state categorically that he has deserted his leader in the hour of triumph, and quote the case of Napoleon’s brother as a parallel. An amazing business, but not more so than many things at this time.
