£1 Rock and Badge of Gibraltar Regiment single

A fortified promontory on the European side of the Strait of Gibraltar. Strategically located, Gibraltar has passed under a number of rulers over the centuries. Britain occupied the area in 1704 and has held it since, although Spain maintains its claim to the colony. United Nations resolutions in 1967 prompted a referendum that overwhelmingly endorsed the continuation of British rule.
