Spain's Guardia Civil has sought to change its highly conservative (not to say authoritarian) image with new uniforms being issued this year. These include green base-ball caps, polo shirts and cargo pants. Photographs show the new-look Civil Guard to resemble their counter-parts in other European police forces as the trend to casual dress spreads - distinctly unsmart but probably a good deal more comfortable. The historic three-corned hat will be retained for ceremonial parades and guard duty outside public buildings.
