Official British photograph showing the former radio station of Lord Haw-Haw.

Photograph | Photograph Number: 49987

Official British photograph showing the former radio station of Lord Haw-Haw.

The original caption reads: "In the morning following the surrender of Hamburg, No. 4 Information Control Unit took the control of the Hamburg Radio Station (Reichsender Hamburg) famous for the broadcasts in English by the renegade William Joyce (Lord Haw-Haw) whose office and broadcasts were found intact. The station, worked by part of the original German staff under orders of British and Canadian Army technicians was on the air in German and English, in the evening of that day, and has broadcast ever since. The station is in charge of Lieut, Col. P. Lieven, M.C.Q.C. of No. 4 of the Canadian Army, former radio producer and announcer at Montreal. His chief engineer is Major P.A. Findley, R.E.M.E. who has worked for the B.B.C. The station is closely guarded by British troops to prevent possilble sabotage.

Photo shows William Joyce's office, showing a Second Army Documents team going through his speeches, past and present. His organization was found to be very efficient and on his files were copies of extracts from British P.O.W.'s letters that had been "milked" for his broadcasts, as well as German intelligence reports."
