The Philatelic War of 1959 . ll

One of the noteworthy aspects of the Philatelic War was that some  Tradgardland units went into action wearing their ceremonial uniforms. This was due to the necessity to commit forces quickly including those guarding the Ducal Palace or engaged in preparations for the March past on Independence Day.
