1re brigade coloniale mixte FFL

Post by wwilson » 18 Dec 2021 16:31

I have data on this brigade becoming the second brigade of the Free French Light Division that took part in Operation Exporter. The change in name would have taken place, I think, around April or May 1941.

What I am wondering is how long this brigade was in existence prior to then? Circumstantial data points to sometime in 1941, but I can't pinpoint anything more exact.
