You list the person second from the left as Erich Kordt. This is incorrect. The person is Theodor (Theo) Kordt, the brother of Erich, and at the time the German chargé d’affaires in London. Theo and Erich were both involved in the 1938 plot to overthrow Hitler, and Theo had met with Halifax on 7 September 1938 at 10 Downing St to urge a firm stand against Hitler's claims for the Sudetenland, advising that if Hitler ordered the invasion of Czechoslovakia, he would be overthrown.
