The meeting Unity longed for finally happened on 9 February 1935. Also she was a big fan of "Cavalcade", which was Hitler's favourite film after "King Kong"."I met her in the Osteria Bavaria. The Osteria was a small inn, it is still there, and hasn't changed much. There was a wooden partition, and behind it a table to seat eight.An adjutant would phone the owner to warn that Hitler might be coming and to have the table clear."As a war baby, her second name, 'Valkyrie', after the warrior maidens of 'The Ring,' was a tribute to her grandfather Redesdale's passion for Wagner".Indeed, Bertie's closest friend was none other than Houston Stewart Chamberlain, Wagner's son-in-law and the Nineteenth Century apostle of "Aryan supremacy"."Unity Valkyrie became one of the Mitford Girls, the younger sister of Nancy, a famous British author, and Diana, who came close to becoming the first woman since Mary, Queen of Scots, to "shake hands with Jack Ketch at the Tower".Like me, Mitford would be invited by the adjutant [Julius] Schaub.
