Gibraltar - still reigned over by the British because the monkeys are still there - the Awesome World of Things

Gibraltar is a British overseas territory located on the southern end of the Iberian Peninsula at the entrance of the Mediterranean.
One of the earliest British Governors of Gibraltar was the scot Major General Roger Elliot who was not only famous for keeping the territory British but also took on the whole French army in an earlier battle with only two regiments.
Gibraltar is known for it’s Barbary Macaques which are resident wild monkeys. A myth is that should these monkeys ever leave the territory then the British reign will also end. This myth so concerned Winston Churchill during the Second World War that he gave special instructions to ensure their survival. Elliot is a famous member of the clan Elliot to which I belong.
