In the photo we can see Mr. Gabriel Creidi. He was born at Beirut Lebanon; his faith was the Maronite Christianity. He came to Argentina in the 1920s and he married and lived in the province of San Juan, he also was fencing master (Maître d’Arm) following the French school of fencing. He also knew the traditional weapons of the east Mediterranean Sea. If you see at the photo he was holding a buckler type shield and a saber type weapon.

This is the Argentine National Diploma as Fencing Master

I thank Mr. Joel Salinas who have given to me this information about his grandfather.
