Soldiers Of The Pope | Documentary | David Willer | Youtube


Recommended Posts

This is a documentary about the Pontifical Swiss Guard (GSP) (the Pope's private military force, not technically the Vatican's Army).

There is also the Gendarmeria Vaticana (Vatican State Police) who the armed police-security force of Vatican City State. They generally carry do the more police, traffic, crime stuff, whilst the Swiss Guard are more of a bodyguard for the Pope.

Interestingly, they are armed (mostly SIG firearms), when they put their halberd down.

This is a bit dated, but some of it is still current I'm sure.
