    Les Diables Rouges

    The Prussian

    Recommended Posts


    I´ve got this nice photo from 3rd company, french infantry regiment 152.

    Does anyone know when the picture was taken and since when the regiment had the devil's badge on the cap (Bonnet de police) and which medal the officer wears?

    Thanks a lot in advance!

    Hi Chris!


    Thanks a lot! Yes, at the Hartmannsweillerkopf they received their nickname by german troops and kept it until today!

    By the way, I got the information, that they received their cap-badge in 1924

    The officer is wearing a Colonial Medal with one bar for overseas campaign service. Most likely for Morocco during this time period.

    Hi Rich!

    Thank you very much!

    So I´ll have to buy another one with the Morocco clasp.

    I only have the Algerian one...
