Example text

While almost everyone was dressed in civilian and peasant costumes, it recommended that all should wear the Cross of Santiago on the breast of their coats, in gold lace for a commandant, silver lace for his subaltern officers, red cloth for a captain (sergeant), and white for a corporal. The rest of the men were to have the red cross on the upper left sleeve. In 1811 the armed Interior Divisions of the Alarmas had 13,920 muskets, 12,940 carbines and 31,130 knives (PRO, WO 1/261). 1810-1812 The three artillery companies at Collure (Betanzos) even had a uniform, approved by the Junta, consisting of a brown round jacket and breeches, with yellow collar and cuffs, gold grenades at the collar, brass buttons, black knee gaiters, and a black round hat.

The Guardia Patria de Caballeria was a squadron of three companies of 183 volunteer cavalrymen organized in Sevilla from 28 May 1808. Their duties were to escort the Central Junta and its leaders, and to serve as messengers carrying the Junta's decrees. It was probably dissolved at the same time as the Junta in 1810. The uniform was the same as the royal guard, the Guardia de Corps, the bandoleer being scarlet with silver lace. The Carmona Lancers, raised from 1 June 1808, became the 2nd Squadron of the Regiment of Volunteer Cavalry of Sevilla on 18 August.

Geronimo Merino, El Cura, was indeed a 'parish priest'. Revolted by the wanton brutality of the French, he raised a band which became the most famous in Old Castille. In July 1810 his men caused over 200 casualties to the 43rd and 44lh Naval Battalions in an ambush near Soria; and in October they captured a vast convoy, depriving the French troops in Burgos of supplies for weeks. REGIONAL VOLUNTEERS AND ARMED PEASANTRY A multitude of city volunteer and armed peasantry units were raised during the Peninsular War.
