Post subject:  Forces Françaises Libre LHG

The scope of the group 1re Division Françaises Libre LHG has been enlarged to encompass the two Free French units that eventually became 1DFL and 2DB. This will enable the group to represent both the North African/Mediterranean theatre and North-West Europe. As a consequence the name of the group has been changed to Forces Françaises Libre LHG.

The composition of the Free French forces changed considerably throughout the war. To give members and prospective members an idea of some of the portrayals open to them, I have produced some generic lists, three for 1DFL and two for 2DB.

The group operates under the auspices of WW2 In Colour and in conjuction with my other project, The Other Allies LHG.
