    Nice tribute to our small contingent which landed on D-Day.

    If you allow me a small precision regarding accuracy, I am pretty sure that Free French Commandos did not wear Denison smocks until after the Normandy Campaign. The smocks were issued sometime in the Automn of 1944 and worn during the Walcheren assault in November that year.

    A beautiful figure, Cpl Ho. May I ask who made that beret badge? I will go with his Denison having been "liberated", while the armies were gathering for the assault.

    Re: KITBASH: Commando 'Kieffer' (Op. 'Infatuate' - Walcheren, November 1944)

    Thanks 'Saint', for the small but important correction... I've done some amendment to improve the accuracy of the period... Hope it's better now...

    Sorry PKDog, I tried to look for a French Marine Commando beret badge on ebay, but I think it's already sold out... so I had to photoshop this one...

    Excusez-moi... now I have to go do the actual figure for the D-Day group bash...
