    Highly decorated Goumiers....

    Hello Chris.

    Thank you for bringing this to our attention.

    The one gentleman also served in Indochina as his many decorations testified.

    Their origin from the mountains of Morocco made them particularly able to operate on Corsica and other regions. One Tabor was destroyed in the debacle of RC 4 in Tonkin in October of 1950. Our unit never operated with any Goum because of the different modes of deployment in the field ( amphibious vs mountainous environment). But they were well known!

    Hi Chris

    The "goumiers" were highly respected warriors with the French 1st Army in 1944-1945. I am happy to know the old boys have been properly looked after. Thanks for showing this clip.

    All the best
