Location: Dunkirk perimeter, protecting your arse!
Group: 1939-40 French infantry
I'm French, living in the US. I do several French impressions but mostly 1940, 137e R.I. Also 4th French Commandos, 4th SAS, and others. Very difficult time trying to encourage others in the Midwest to join me, over 13 years I'm doing this alone. There is a nice 1940 French group on the Eastern side of the US, based in Virginia.

Yes. Thank you Pierre. We know that site very well and are Facebook friends with the young lady who created it.

I have found many French reenactors and their help has been invaluable in keeping us on the right track.
