Militias organised by the trade unions played a significant role at the beginning of the Spanish Civil War. Anarchosyndicalist CNT-FAI trade union had over a million members, many of them with military training and already roming armed groups ormed or example to protect strikes.
These two militiamen have typical civilian look. Due to lack of uniorms or lack of will to wear them workers' outfits were often worn by militiamen. They both have Spanish Mausers - model 1893, which in 1936 was obsolete (it was used during the Spanish-American war) but still used by for example police forces.
