Also, a collection of early 20th century black and white photographs showing Braun, some with Hitler, sold for £100

Sophie Jones, auctioneer and valuer at Philip Serrell, said an “array” of people, whom were mostly private collectors bid on the items.

It is generally people fascinated with that period of history,” she said. “I think people who were bidding on them were private collectors more than dealers.

She also added that many of the items at the auction, including the underwear, had certificates of authenticity from the relevant seller, she added.
