Monty relaxing with Rommel (his pet dog) and laughing at George Formby: WWII snaps show hero of El Alamein on and off-duty

An archive of photos that capture Field Marshal Sir Bernard Montgomery in more informal moments in the final months of the Second World War has been discovered.

About 200 black and white snaps were either taken or amassed by the British Army chief’s assistant who was by his side as the Allies swept towards Germany.

They include one of Winston Churchill seated next to ‘Monty’ stroking the war hero’s pet spaniel dog, whom he named Rommel after his famous German arch-rival general. for more click here
