Swiss Guards

Daily Pic: 

The Pontifical Swiss Guards of the Holy See in the official dress uniforms. The Swiss Guard is the de facto military force of Vatican City and the oldest (over 500 years) standing active military unit. There are about 135 men in the force, all - single Catholic Swiss males, not shorter than 174 cm.

Note the notepad in the hand of the guardsman on the left. I guess it would take them another hundred years to replace those pads with iPad C (that would be Centum in Latin).
