On May 10, 1941 Rudolf Hess made his brave solo flight from Ausburg to Scotland, on a doomed peace-mission, in a specially adapted Me 110 fighter plane, and parachuted out near the estate of the Duke of Hamilton. He was held as a prisoner by the British secret service MI6 in a house in southern England, then in Wales until November 1945.
