Portugal seemed about to be invaded by franco-spanish troops in the context of the Seven Year War. The Alliance was invoked and an expedition of 8000 British troops commanded by General Lord Tyrawley came to Portugal. In practice due to his advanced age command was taken over by his son Charles.
The British Historical Society of Portugal is a Society with about 250 members and has as its object to recover, preserve and collate as much as possible of the history of the British in Portugal, and to promote interest in the History of Anglo-Portuguese relations.
