Carlist requetés receive the benediction before an assault on Irun - 1936
Renowned for their fierce dedication to Catholicism, the requetés often held mass before entering battle, as well as utilising battlefield clerics to say Last Rites to dying militiamen on the field. The requetés saw the Spanish Civil War as a “Crusade” against what they saw as “atheist bolshevik hordes” taking over their traditionally Catholic Spain.
