    Thanks you Steven. I think Spanish militaria is quite limited to collectors. Sometimes collectors make so egocentric that only want to show off and demonstrate how big their collections ore knowledges are.

    Most of times knowledge comes from the watching/talking with veterans or graphic documents, videos or books. Now it´s simply time to share some interesting links and perhaps if required comment some puntual thing of them if anyone has any doubt.

    For me collecting is that. Perhaps I am so empiric, but I don´t like to make my own conclusions, simply describing and presenting possibilities.

    One curious photo is this http://www.fotosdelamili.com/Images/FRANCISCO%20RUIZ/Paco%20extra%20Mando%20Perdido%201966.jpg

    In it we can see an couple of artillery Spanish soldiers in 1966 wearing french uniforms. Surprising!!! Perhaps any clairvoyant will inmediately make the theory "Some Spanish elite troops wore the french para camo uniforms".

    The reason is simplier than that and specified by the son of the "star" of the photo: At that time movie Lost Command (Anthony Quinn) was filmed in Spain and Spanish soldiers were contracted like extras of cinema characterizing french parachoutist soldiers.

    Simple explanations to absurdities like that are dozens.

    Best regards Steven and thanks for answering.
