Did Mussolini have a distinctive bodyguard unit in the RSI over 1944-45?

I have seen a reference to a Colonel Albonetti as the commander of some such bodyguard. He was apparently wounded in an anti-partisan sweep.

Does anyone have more on it?

Many thanks,

Sid

The Answer is yes.

As you mentioned, the "M" Legion Duce's Guard" (in italian Legione "M" Guardia del Duce") was a spefic unit of G.N.R. destinated to bodyguard Mussolini himself.

A video made on october 28th, 1944, 22nd anniversary of th Rome's march, in which is possible to see clearly the Legion and its motorbikers's Platoon:


The video was taken during the delivery ceremony of the war's flag to the Legion "M" "Guardia del Duce".
