"Now that India is independent, the future of the diamond-studded imperial crown, left made especially for the durbar of King George V in India, is a problem for constitutional experts. India wants it back, along with other gifts presented to Britain."

British Troops leaving India, August 1947.

Last Viceroy of East India Company Mountbatten, addressing the contingent of British troops which left Bombay for England, said: “I have come down to Bombay today to say good-bye to the first contingent of the British Forces in India to leave India after the transfer of power. This is a very historic day; because with the departure of the British forces, the outward and visible sign of British rule in India disappears. And its place is taken by something very much more valuable —a really great friendship between the British and the Indians. I want to thank all the British forces for the part that they have played in establishing good relations in this country. Good luck to you; a pleasant trip home; and I hope you find everybody in good heart when you go back. Good-bye and good luck.”
