    Spanish Legion - Wikipedia
    In recent years, the Spanish Legion was involved in Bosnia as part of the SFOR. It also took part in the Iraq War, deploying in Najaf alongside Salvadoran troops, until the new Spanish government of José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero fulfilled its electoral promises by withdrawing Spanish troops from Iraq. The legion units deployed in Iraq were involved in several operations against the insurgency. In 2005, the legion was deployed in Afghanistan as part of the NATO-led International Stabilisation Force (ISAF). In 2006, the 10th Bandera was sent to Southern Lebanon as part of United Nations' Operation UNIFIL.[7]

    Ever heard of Tom of Finland?

    I looked the Legion up on Twatter.
    Celebrated 98 years a few days ago, but there is a lot of camp hilarity on there too.

    And this.
    Franco with the Legion'' founder:

    'The Bridegroom's of Death.'

    Bit of a recent kerfuffle about neo-Nazism & suspect tattoos.
