What you say is correct, but you have misunderstood my use of the word "indication" (as a synonym for "evidence"). By 1936, the gloves were certainly off, even at the Olympic Games itself athletes of various nations were roughed up by the SS for refusing to give the Hitler salute - which made Owen's performance even more of a poke in the eye for Hitler!
