Here’s what else was happening 80-years-ago today

aGeneralissimo Francisco Franco unified the Falangists and Carlists into a single party called the Falange Española Tradicionalista y de las Juntas de Ofensiva Nacional Sindicalista.


The Non-Intervention Committee agreed to establish patrols of Spain’s coasts. The patrols were authorized to determine the destination of vessels but not to carry out search and seizure operations. Germany and Italy were to monitor Republican ships while Britain and France would monitor the Nationalists. This scheme proved to be ineffective since the Germans could use ships flying the Panamanian or Liberian flags and unload their cargo in Portugal with the complicity of authorities there.
