Yes, He is Vicente Rojo (1894-1966), general of the Republican Army and one of its most prestigious officers.

Your turn... :D



P.S http://www.german-militaria.co.uk/uni24.htm includes a description of a capitán of the legion condor with 3 six-pointed stars... but the spanish word "capitán" (or english "captain") is the same rank of german "hauptmann"?

These automatic translators... :D

The ship is Still there...I know I´ve been at Cabo Mayor many times and never seen nobody trying to recover the guns (Poor Graff Spree)
You know ,there was a story that the letters in the back of the Ship were made of gold and several died trying to recover them...
And also Gernika was occupied by Nationalist troops but I want to believe you were Referring to my Hometown ... :wink:
