Every year, members of the four legionary thirds parade in different cities. In the case of Malaga, the thirds take turns each year to escort their patron, the Christ of the Good Death. The legionnaires' parades on these dates provoke great admiration and always attract the attention of the media. But behind those shows there is a lot of work to make everything go perfectly.

A few days ago, CharryTV Ronda showed us the rehearsals of the spenders of the X Flag "Millán Astray" of the Tercio "Alejandro Farnesio" 4th of the Legion, which is based in Ronda (Málaga). The Legion's squads of spenders not only parade, but also do acrobatics with their CETME C rifles. The video includes at the end an interview with the corporal who leads this squad:
