Quote from: Ice Torch on October 04, 2009, 12:46:56 AMI am surprised that at various times, according to your posts, Ceylon and India were allowed to use uncrowned effigies of QEII and EVII. I thought that an unspoken apartheid would have been maintained between First World and Third World. In other words, it just ain't pukka.

There are enough distinctions in the effigies once you start looking.If this isn't the appropriate location for the images I'm happy for them to be moved.
