Reception Ceremony of British PM Chamberlain in Münich

British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain (front row, second right) walks with past an Nazi honor guard from SS-Standarte Deutschland at his reception upon arriving at Oberwiesenfeld airport (Münich) on the way to a meeting with Adolf Hitler over the latter's threats to invade Czechoslovakia, September 28, 1938. Pictured are, from left to right: Gauleiter Adolf Wagner (NSDAP-Gauleiter von München, bayerischer Minister und SA-Obergruppenführer), SA-Obergruppenführer Franz Ritter von Epp (Reichsstatthalter von Bayern), SS-Obersturmbannführer Matthias Kleinheisterkamp (Kommandeur III.Sturmbann / SS-Standarte Deutschland), Reichsminister Joachim von Ribbentrop (Reichsminister des Auswärtigen), SS-Brigadeführer Christian Weber (Inspekteur der SS-Reitschulen), Chamberlain, SS-Obergruppenführer und General der Polizei Kurt Daluege (Chef der Deutschen Ordnungspolizei), SS-Gruppenführer Reinhard Heydrich (Leiter der Politischen Abteilung der Polizeidirektion München), and Sir Neville Henderson (British Ambassador to Germany). The picture was taken by Hugo Jaeger. In the late 1930's Hugo Jaeger was an early adopter of color photos. When his work was introduced to the Führer, he liked what he saw. Between 1936 and 1945 he had unprecedented access to Hitler from public events to small private gatherings. Many colored photos were taken, including this one.
