His real name is Military Sash -banda militar- (or cord -cordón militar-) for commemorating the end of the spanish civil war

Sash (for chiefs and capitans). Constituted by a silk sash, of crimson color and of eight centimeters of width, of whose ends paths hang tassels with bangs of silk of equal color and of twelve centimeters of length. The union of both ends will be done spending the ribbon doubled by a golden ring that will take in his forehead the inscription 1936-1939. The length of the set will be such that the metallic ring stays approximately fifteen centimeters below the waist.

Is placed always from the right shoulder to the left side (for chiefs and captains).

Cord (for officers) His length and color are the same that those of the sash, and it finishes in made tassels of the same cord. The ring union of both ends takes the same inscription that the ring of the Band, and his dimensions adapted to the thickness of the ends of the cord. The diameter of this one is of a centimeter

In use between 1940-1989

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
