Franco's Moorish Guard

Post  ChrisF202 on Tue 02 Mar 2010, 10:36 am

I am not sure if we have dicussed this before but here are some pictures I found of the Moorish Guard/Guardia Mora - the personal bodyguard of Spanish leader Fransisco Franco. The guard existed from 1939 until 1957 and was organized as a cavalry regiment.
