Is it a typical French thing with the modified pistol holster?

I don't know if every SAS (British, French and Belgian) did that, but there are pictures that we can see the modified holster for the French. It was more easy for drawn the pistol.

Hi guys! :D

As we have come to expect from our French friends, "A 1st CLASS IMPRESSION" and the envy of many on here i would expect! :wink:

From what i have seen of the photos which you post of your group, you do not just talk about the history, you all go out and live the history! :D

"WELL DONE" again and thank you for posting more photos of your excellant group in action :wink:

Kenny

The German troops knew that there was a camp, but at this moment they believed that Allied Forces prepared a Brittany invasion next to Normandy Invasion. They stayed near the costline. Every night there was a drop of containers, the Germans knew that and there had one time a drop at a German place.

We would like one day come to UK for do a reenactment with theme "Before the D-Day". In 15 years ago (approximately), there was a reenactment to Dover with this theme, but I was so young. There is one reenactment of this theme now (not to far in the land) ?

Merci pour les belle photos! Tres bien! I have one question: I've always wondered about the placement of patches on the BDs and smocks....what are the correct patches a French SAS para would have had on the sleeves? Was there a difference for combat and dress? merci, et a bientot j'espere!

when we look the pictures at this time, we can see many positions for the patchs. It was free for that. And there are a lot of variety of patch which weren't wore every all (Free French wings, uk wings, polish wings, titles "France", Pegasus patches, Infanterie de l'Air patch, FAFL or other badges FFL, ...).

For the smocks, it was free too. We can see Free French wings, titles "France". In our group, we try to show differents patches's position that we had can saw on pictures.

Hi Stijn,

The Belgian SAS guys did not modify their holsters like that so it's not correct for your group.

Regards,

Des
