Re: Goumiers

Theres a photo allegedly from Cassino showing some Goumiers using a Browning M1919 30cal Mmg...

No idea if its actually Cassino, but they look like Goumiers to me...

So I guess you could replace the Vickers with this if you want...

:wink:

Re: Goumiers

Ohh...

Goumiers from Marocco....just another type of french foreign legion..

Following the old french tradition; Let the others fight & die.. Its enough to give them our officers... :laughing:

Re: Goumiers

Another Pic showing Goumiers with what looks like (Berthier?) 07-15 M34 Rifles and Mle24-29Lmgs, could easily be mistaken for a BAR, visual difference in 1/72 is the Mag is on the top for the Mle24-29s, both the weapons in the pic use 7.5ammo...


Notice also French ammo pouches:
