Iceland (C)

On a letter to Lord Privy Seal, transcribed on The Grand Alliance, pages 397-398, Churchill makes a comment about Iceland, and remarks a careful procedure to cite this country.

The text:
[...] Franklin Junior is serving on one of them, and has been  appointed Liaison Officer to me during my day in Iceland (C)*, where there will be a joint review of British and American Forces.
The note:
* To avoid confusion with Ireland, I had directed that Iceland was always to be written by the British authorities as Iceland (C). This was a necessary precaution.
