    The film shows king Gustaf receiving the Swedish Saar batallion, which has been part of the international force supervising the plebiscite in Saar over the question if the region should remain with France or return to Germany. (It was ceded to France for 15 years in the Versailles peace treaty.)

    Sorry, King Gustaf is sending the Swedish Saar batallion on its way, in december 1934. The pelibicsite wasn´t until early in `35.
