Law/Patents - Certificates, Diplomas, Licenses, CVs / text from Colombia
Spanish term or phrase: an abbreviation (C.M.)
This is a birth certificate from Colombia, after listing the "Cedula" number, the abbreviation C.M. follows the number.
For example, "John Doe, Cedula No. 01010101 C.M."

I want to know what C.M. stands for, and what would be the translation into English.

Thank you for your help.

Cédula Militar
Explanation:
It's my guess, especially if this refers to the document number of the father of the 'child' in the birth certificate, as the child itself would not have a military identity card! Wikipedia mentions that the 'Cédula de ciudadanía or C.C. became valid in 1961, so maybe the 1945 'cédula' was a military one.
My humble contribution! Hope it helps!
