    Spanish soldiers protecting Ceuta& Meillia

    Hi all:

    Here are some photos of Spanish soldiers protecting Ceuta and Meillia (small towns in Morroco but part of Spain) If you scroll down you'll spot some soldiers wearing red fez (the ones from Did and Dragon will come in handy after dying them)
    No idea why these soldiers wear them. Perhaps, Philippe, GK Zhukov and the other Spanish members can help out

    That's not a fez, but a tarbuz. So the trooper is a 'regular', that is, a member of the 'regular indigenous troops' - in the early S. XX, native troops (saharaui) commanded by Spanish officers. Since the defection from Sahara, Regulars are manned by spaniards.

    As a sidenote, a classmate of my father was assigned, as a brand new 2nd Lt, to a Regular Tabor (regiment). The first day, he had to witness the autopsy of one of his men. The young officer was looked with indulgence by his seniors when he often doubled over his tarbuz, obviously to puke in it. When the autopsy was over, the colonel had a close look at the poor guy... and found the tarbuz half-filled (then) with brandy.
