Post"Regiment of Priests" Photo (John Heelan, UK, 04/10/15 8:47 am)
Here is the apparent provenance of the "Regiment of Priests" photo posted by Enrique Torner (8 April):
I note that the article claims they were a firing squad in Valladolid and appears to allocate names to the priests. However as a keen photographer I am suspicious. Magnifying and examining it, I note the trousers poking out under the cassock in the back row, none of the "priests" is wearing a cross and there is an officer in military uniform standing at the back right of the shot.
It could well be an image taken for propaganda purposes by either side in the conflict.
JE comments: Can we conclude that this is a staged shot? Let's just call it fake. But this begs the question: the CGT published it, but which side produced it? As John Heelan observes, compelling arguments could be made for either.
