French plastic Marines

French marine fusiliers fighting in flooded trenches at Dixmude in December 1914 watercolor by artist Charles Fouqueray, present during combat .The story of the French Marines is one of the epics of the World War. Such is the story of the Breton's. At Dixmude, under command of their own officers, retaining not only the costume, but the soul and language of their profession they were still sailors. Grouped with them were seamen from all the naval stations.
