Here you have the answer, the spanish buckle-belt have the symbol of infanterie not in blue and not with the Aguila de San Juan that is place better in the general rombos of army. I mean in the 1939 times. The name of Blue Division, comes from the shirts, that use the falange blue colour of these voluntaries.

    That the famous " The Congressional MEDAL OF HONOR" have the motto in spanish "VALOR", not 'courage' or 'bravery' in english even 'honor' comes from the spanish honor and not from the english 'honour'. Even the most important argentinian historian claims that Jefferson was an spaniard (it is difficult). Anyway the dollar symbol means Spain and the two bars the "Columnas the Hercules" that are in south of Spain and are a symbol that comes from Reyes Católicos tems (XIV century), One is Gibraltar... Even the american dollar and the "pesos" of Hispano América. comes from the spanish "Real the a 8" currency that was the stronger money currency in all the world during four centuries until XIX century. It dies in China in 1945. https://www.eleconomista.net/economia/Por-que-peso-es-el-nombre-de-tantas-monedas-en-America-Latina-20190222-0017.html logo6500.bmp

    I begin here a section about military spanish and hispano-american curiosities: If somebody knows any, please do not keep your mouth shut. Say here. The motto "SEMPER FIDELIS" ("always loyal") is typical of the American Marines Corp... and also was adopted by the spanish TERCIO de la Armada (Spanish Marine Corp) Spanish Marine Corp Is the most ancient in the world, create in february, 27 1537 by the Emperor of Roman-German empire and King of Castile and Aragón, etc... Charles the fifth (they are infantry professional soldiers) board and that stay apart of the naval crew. This is the real reason because the spanish armada rule the waves for two centuries, as less. Apart of this Castile have the most strongest navy as less since XIV century in West-Europe and Aragón from XIII siecle as less in the west-mediterranean sea. The Gregorian calendar, much accurate than the Julian calendar, was developed by pope Gregorio the thirteen , and from 1582 adopted immediately in the navies of some catholic countries, between them Spain, Italy, Portugal, Poland, that adopted it. This technology was the best for the measure of time in sailing. This new precision in long travels let spanish armada (within a much superior cartography) to take a definitive advantage to his european enemies than can't find the way to America for one centurie. The first nations than come, in fact use spanish betrayer pilots.

    Spanish Legion Chapiri

    Hello Aldo, your "chapiri" ,that is the name of one of the legionarie cap, the most known, is from the period 1927-1931(without chinstrap): The answer is in the cap badge that is the only that have the crown in the middle, in the 1931 comes the II republic and the crown go out. Inteh civil war (1936) remains the same because on those times the "rebels" fight for the republic too, and afterwards has not be a real monarchy in Spain. About the litle badge that have the "rojigualda" flag and the falange simbol, i bougth one identical to a door to door salesman in 1996 and is an actual badge model.
