Last Updated: 5:47PM BST 03/07/2008

War veterans are outraged after memorabilia from an infamous Nazi unit which massacred nearly 100 British prisoners of war was put up for auction.
Uniform patches from the 3rd SS division Totenkopf - the notorious "death's heads" regiment - are expected to fetch £300 when they go under the hammer.
The Totenkopf division, made up of former concentration camp guards, slaughtered 97 soldiers of the Royal Norfolk Regiment who had surrendered to them in France in 1940.
