For the year 1909 in my Great Grandfathers Civil Guard records there are four entries.

Here is the third one:

enter image description here

The transcribed text so far:

1909: Por Real orden fecha 10 de agosto (D. O. no 177) se decir las gracias a este individuo por haber contendiendo a la xxx de xxx xxx xxx a Canfórica.

El 2º Jefe

To be honest, I am not sure if the abbreviate is D.O. I have located D. O. no. 177 but don't know what I am looking for. I did wonder if the abbreciation was R.O. but it does look like D.O. to me.


Bulletin Update

I realise that it must be related to the main article on pages 1 and 2 with the title Real Ordenes. I seeit is dated 10 Agosto. As to what it says ... another matter. :)


Translation

Using the transcribed text provided in the comments by @gparis below we get the following translation:

By Royal Order dated 10 August (D. O. No. 177) this individual was thanked for having contributed to the mobilisation of troops for the Campaign (?).

The 2nd Chief

Campaña may refer to the Second Melillan campaign. As you said, the main article of the D.O. no. 177 is an order to thank all the individuals involved in the organization of this troop movement and the repression of the protests.

    By the way, the same article mentions that the additional troop movement to Barcelona involved forces from Mahon, Valencia, Zaragoza, Pamplona, Burgos, Madrid and Sevilla.

  • Thanks @gparis. I have added an initial translation based on your suggestions to my question. I think you are correct about the last word being Campaña. It makes sense and would fit the context given the related information in the linked bulletin. Aug 12 '21 at 15:36
