I am impressed by the souvenir photos here and the citation of the Derry operation with french paratroopers from the S.A.S.
Here is one of the men who were in Derry 2 troops fighting in Brittany august 44 :
Lieutenant Edgar Tupet Thomé, was leading the stick who recovered the town of Landerneau, took the Kommandantur of Daoulas and caused a lot of losses to Nazis in this area of Finistere. He is still alive and was honoured this year by french paratroopers in visiting the places of these fights, please see photos in a diaporama here : http://cote-du-goelo.blogspot.com/p/edgar-tupet-thome.html.
U are doing a nice job here and I have visted your Topic and photos. At a next visit I will show this Topic to Edgar Tupet Thomé and report here.
Yours,
Jean Michel DAOUDAL

thanks

They come up on French eBay relatively frequently, best to keep searching as frequently as possible. The cap badge being worn on the cap in the photo is from Andrew Butler insignia (I believe?) at http://www.6thjune1944.com. It'll be good to see more people portraying the Normandie Niemen squadron, it's vastly overlooked. I'll try and get round to posting some of my Normandie Niemen items up one day.

Hi Nic,

Not wrong, but not particularly common from what can be seen in the wealth of photographs available. It makes sense really, the M3 is a far more useful knife!

Regards,
Philip.

I've always thought the French and Continental Europeans do reenactment better than the British, and this proves it!
Well done guys!
