The Pope's Guards?

Post by AmyT » 17 Dec 2004, 00:58

I wasn't sure which forum this would go to, so I'm putting it here.

Has anyone ever done any research on the Pope's Elite Guards from Spain?

The Pope's guards are from Switzerland and are all Roman Catholic. You can find a little information on them at this site:

No, not you. My grandfather at somewhere around 75 years old sometimes puts things in the wrong order when remembering them. Thats all. I swear though, he could recite anything he has ever read.
