  • 'How conspicuous the secret PIDE men are! They all have the same kind of uniform which betrays them upon sight: the same overcoat in summer and winter, the back deformed by the heavy shape of firearms, which such men always wear upon their hips, hat brims pulled over one eye, as in the best tradition of the cinema except that these are real-life gangsters. . .' Alvaro Lins (Brazilian Ambassador to Portugal), in Missao etii Portugal (Rio de Janeiro 1960), 217.
