The Danish troops would take an oath of allegiance to the King of England. If Denmark became involved in a war, the troops would be returned within three months; Denmark's enemy becoming England's. The use of the troops was solely decided by the English king, but they would be kept together as a corps except in dire emergencies. Galster, Kjeld Harald (2012).
