Command figures for the Foreign Legion in Colonial uniforms
The Foreign Legion went into Tonkin in 1883, at first wearing their uniforms from North Africa, which were totally unsuitable and soon discarded.
These figures are from a slightly later period when the Legion wore the Troupes Coloniales’ khaki drill M1901 tropical uniform. These figures could be painted in all khaki, or with white uncovered sun helmets and white trousers.
Officers wore khaki or white at their discretion.
These figures could also be used for the Dahomey Campaign of 1892 where they were dressed in the same way.
3 figures in the pack, 1 each of the three figures shown: Officer, bugler and NCO.
NOTE: All figures are sold plain (not primed or painted) and without additional basing.
