'The Restoration of the Regalia to the tomb of Queen Elizabeth the first in Westminster Abbey. Research into the identity of the Collar missing from the Queen's marble effigy' by David Hubert Boothby Chesshyre, FSA, Rouge Croix Pursuivant; 1973. Photocopies of typescript. An examination of the evidence undertaken at the request of the Dean and Chapter of Westminster. Concludes that there was no clear evidence that the missing collar was a Garter collar and suggests the 'Three Brothers' pendant and collar shown in the Ermine portrait of Queen Elizabeth as a suitable model for the restoration. Chesshyre's summary, fols. 2-9, is followed by copies of related correspondence from authorities consulted, literary extracts, etc., fols. 16-69.
