During the war years 1939-45 the irritating voice of William Joyce, nicknamed Lord Haw-Haw coming over the wireless from Germany was known to all who listened to German broadcasts.
At the close of hostilities Joyce was captured and duly arrived at the Old Bailey on trial for treason. The legal points at issue were of immense importance, and the question of whether he owed allegiance to the British Crown so vital that leave to appeal from his conviction to the House of Lords was granted.
Joyce lost his final appeal, with one judge dissenting, and was duly hanged.
