Photo and synopsis from the [BBC](http://www.bbc.co.uk/archive/ww2outbreak/7907.shtml)
“From amid cheering crowds at Heston airport on 30 September 1938, Dimbleby observes the historic moment when Chamberlain waves the piece of paper that reportedly was the agreement for peace signed by Adolf Hitler. Stepping down from the plane onto the tarmac, Chamberlain briefs the waiting crowds, who give him a hero’s welcome, before heading to Whitehall. Foreign Secretary Viscount Halifax and Rt Hon Leslie Hore-Belisha, the Secretary of State for War, are also present.”
There is also [footage](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SetNFqcayeA) of him giving his briefing and waving the paper. The clip starts with an eerie title card reading “One man saved us from the greatest war of all”
I wonder how well that worked out for him.
Neville Chamberlain with the Great Pre-War Joke.
