I am indebted to Basiliscoe Mercury for these news items:

The following two items have been included since HBSA is very much about the preservation of Heritage – Arms in our case. Whilst these are about heritage on a slightly larger scale, the principle is interesting to note, particularly since HBSA has cited ISIS fundamentalist destruction of cultural and heritage sites in recent presentations to government.
