We will only accept information by a professional in the chosen field, we will not accept any information from a private individual or internet collectors forum. A smaller event took place two weeks later at Buckingham Palace when eight officers who had served with the WIR handed over the regimental colours to King George V.

To understand this, it is necessary to remember an aspect of sixteenth-century Spain that is all but forgotten now: its obsession with legalism.
