The 152nd Mixed Brigade was a unit of the People's Army of the Republic created during the Spanish Civil War . Located in front of Madrid, it did not play a relevant role throughout the war. The brigade was made up of carabinieri .
The unit was created in June 1937 in Madrid from battalions of the Carabineros Corps , being assigned to the 4th Division [ 1 ] of the II Army Corps . The first head of the unit was the police commander Emeterio Jarillo Orgaz . [ 2 ] During its entire existence, the 152nd WB was deployed in front of Madrid, without taking part in relevant military operations. In August 1937 he relieved the 19th Mixed Brigade in the sector of the front that went from the "Cerro Blanco" to the road to Andalusia ; later it would cover the Usera sector- Villaverde or the Cerro de los Ángeles .
In March 1939, during the Casado coup , the 152nd BM positioned itself in favor of the "Casadista" forces and would go on to carry out surveillance functions east of Madrid. [ 3 ] The unit dissolved itself on March 27, 1939, at the end of the war.
