WWII Troops - French Army by IndonesianAWL WWII Troops - French Army by IndonesianAWL
Sorry that I made it for Indonesian title and not much pictures in there because French Army is not the dominant army in WWII like US Army, or Germany, UK, Japanese, USSR, etc.

From Left to Right:

French Overseas Regiment
French Vichy Sphahi Soldier
French Fighter Pilot
French Charteleault Navy
French Motorized Infantry
French Afrika Korps regiment
Corporal of French Army

"French Motorized Infantry"
The one with the leather jacket ? It's a crewmember of armored troops, not motorized infantry. See his beret badge ? It's a knight helm turned to the left of the observer, over two muzzle-loaded cannons forming a cross.

Around the middle of the page, you'll see a bigger illustration of the metal insignia worn on the beret by French tank crews in 1940.

"because French Army is not the dominant army in WWII"
Not the main player, that's for sure.

But one of the main, that is also for sure. We weren't playing in minor league, y'know. Dunkirk, Bir Hakeim, etc.

Mon groupe fait principalement de la reconstit' de troupes Britanniques, ou de volontaires Belges dans les Forces Britanniques, en tant que para, SAS, marins, fantassins, membre du RASC (L'Intendance, quoi.).
Ou, comme l'a suggéré notre chef de section, une section du RMT.

C'est le groupe dont j'ai reconnu certains des membres, sur une de tes photos prise en Belgique. :)
