Listening to Lord Haw Haw’s broadcasts (which famously always began with the words “Germany Calling, Germany Calling”) was officially discouraged, although incredibly about 60% of the population tuned in after the BBC news every night. The BBC’s output at the beginning of the war was said to have been exceedingly dreary (plus ca change) and the British public seemed to prefer being shocked rather than bored. Lord Haw Haw’s over-the-top and sneering attacks on the British establishment…

28 May 45: Brooklyn-born William Joyce, German propagandist whoseabsurd broadcasts to Britain earned him the nickname "Lord Haw Haw" is shot in the buttocks and captured by British troops. He will be hanged by the British as a traitor on 03 Jan 46, being taken to owe allegiance to the UK by his possession of a British passport, a document to which, ironically, he was not entitled.

William Joyce nicknamed "Lord Haw Haw" with a striking resemblance to Hitler; but for the scar on his face. Joyce was an American, born to Irish parents; a fascist politician who broadcast Nazi propaganda to Britain during the World War II. He was hanged for treason by the British as a result of his wartime activities; even though he renounced his British nationality becoming a naturalised German. He went to the gallows unrepentant!
