There is footage of Italian Blackshirts at a 1920s Remembrance Day Parade in Liverpool, too. Of course Italy was a gallant ally in the Great War.

That poster is brilliant! I think the fact that Weimar Germany had Proportional Representation meant that there were small far-left groups and other parties, that could get a few MPs elected to the Reichstag. This meant that there was no need for diverse ideologies to merge into one big party as we ...

Well, it was a SPD (Germany Socialist Party) that, as you say, was anti-fascist and anti-communist. The Labour Party would be its British equivalent, but neither the BUF or the CPGB ever look remotely likely to come to power, so there was no need for it in Britain. However, in the radicalised world ...

There was a general fear in the 1930s that the RAF had officers who were also members of Mosley's BUF. Rex Warner wrote a novel on this theme called "The Aerodrome" (1941) that is worth a read. Some flying enthusiasts supported Mosley without doubt; A V Roe comes to mind.

Looking at the preview of the book, I think the influence of VBCW is quite clear in the alternative timeline. But this seems OK; perhaps there will be a renewed interest in the VBCW version of events.
