I don't get it and the great translator box (since I don't read Spanish beyond food) fails me.

"Spanish troops in the Russian army in the Napoleon Wars" seems a bit far fetched to associate with the Russkies Imp. Guard. Prisoners? Deserters? Did a Russian fleet nip around the continent (and back) to pick up a few Spanish volunteers?

The pic shows reminiscence of various parts of French attire, surely a more 'Russian' uniform is likely?

The book si about: "Imperial Guard Regiment of Alexander I: Spanish troops in the Russian army during the Napoleonic Wars.- About the Spanish Line Infantry Regiment No. 36 "The Muscovite"….

So… Spanish who fought with the Russians against Napoleon…

they didn't fought with the Russians but more against them with Napoleon

they were Spaniards from La Romana's Corps in Denmark who fought WITH the French

then becoming Spaniards who still fought WITH the French in the French Army in the Regiment José Napoléon (and Portuguese Legion an other spanish unit) AGAINST the Russians in 1812

then deserters and prisoners organized in Russia by the Russians but to be sent in Spain in 1813 AGAINST the French, they were not really welcomed by their compatriots

por cierto the so-called Muscovite
El regimiento mantuvo su nombre inicial hasta 1823, aunque cariñosamente siempre recibieron el apodo del "Regimiento Moscovita", pese a nunca haber pisado Moscú.
