This remarkable footage captures the day David Lloyd George cosied up to Hitler during a pre-war trip to Germany before hailing him as 'the greatest living German'.

The grainy black and white film shows the politician and his entourage travelling around Germany in 1936, where they dined with the Nazi ruler and rode together on new autobahns.

The 16mm propaganda film also captures Lloyd George schmoozing and laughing with the dictator as he tours a Bavarian town. 

In another clip, the British PM lays a wreath at a war memorial in Munich, while the flags of the Nazi Party and the UK hang side by side in the background.
