This album gives a chronological account of the visit. The photographs show the delegation being greeted by crowds giving the 'Heil Hitler' salute as they arrive at Friedrichstrasse station in Berlin.
Evil: Hermann Goering shows off his archery skills for the visitors. The images were part of a Nazi plan to turn the British visit into a propaganda coup
The trip was organised by Joachim von Ribbentrop, then the Nazis' ambassador-at-large.
When the delegation is pictured meeting Hitler at the German Chancellery, the Fuhrer's office, they are surrounded by Nazi film cameras.
And Major Fetherston-Godley is photographed shaking hands with Hess. The delegation is also shown laying a wreath for the fallen soldiers of the First World War at the Neue Wache monument in Berlin and, outside, the Legionnaires are seen shaking hands with wheelchair- bound German veterans.
When the delegation paraded with the Union flag past the German ex-servicemen, they were greeted with 'Heil Hitler' salutes from the injured combatants, and, in one striking picture, the Nazis leading the British parade are giving salutes too.
The Legionnaires' arrival in Berlin was made to look like a Third Reich military parade.
The trip took the Britons to Stahnsdorf cemetery, just outside Berlin, to pay their respects to the 1,200 Commonwealth war dead from the 1914-18 conflict who are buried there.
Photographs show huge Nazi flags surrounding the delegation as they pay their respects.
