I send you pictures of my last diorama about the Belgian Front in 1915. Figures are all from Hät except one. I have modified the infantry to make naval riflemen. The scene takes place in 1915 somewhere near Nieuport. The German called the French naval riflemen, "demoiselle au pompon rouge", because some were very young. But they were also courageous when they saved the Belgian army in 1914, when the 6000 naval riflemen, (a lot were from Brittany), stopped 30000 Germans at Dixmude. The flag of the naval riflemen is the third most decorated of the French army and was created in 1914.
Many thanks to Mr. Thierry Maguet.
