Description

Corporal Gregorio Posada Zurrón was born in Villaferrueña (Zamora). He was married and had two daughters, aged 6 and 4. Following in the footsteps of his father, he joined the Civil Guard. In 1974, he was in charge of the Information Group in Azpeitia (Guipúzcoa), having turned down a transfer to Logroño. On 3 April 1974, he was travelling along Calle Juan XXII in Azpeitia. He was driving slowly, because there were road works in the street. Two terrorists came out in front of the car and shot him at point-blank range with two foreign-manufactured machine-guns. Gregorio lost control of the car and crashed into the door of a commercial premises. He was taken to the Military Hospital in San Sebastian, where he died two hours later.
