I Googled "FSSF" and the first link was to a tribute page set up by a grandson of one of the unit's Canadian officers. The cool thing is they're selling a replica V-42 dagger that would look real cool on my web belt!

My Grandfather was a Canadian Member of the force. Here's his application for a purple heart after he was wounded during the breakout from Anzio
If you havent figured it out the move "The Devils Brigade" is about the force.

I believe MilitaryTour.com has a replica also.

I wanted to buy one and make a rubber copy out of it (Coldsteel style)

If you need help with a FSSF loadout, either PM me, or check the kit guide I made on my website

Love that movie, although for some reason when it's on I just keep seeing the first half over and over again.
How accurate was it, in the notion that Canada sent first rate disciplined troops, and the US sent refugees from the stockade?

Hey Ex, that application is a nice piece of personal history.

On the evening of June 4, 1944 members of the FSSF entered Rome. They were some of the first Allied soldiers to enter the city.

I think the spelling of Colona on the application should have been Colonna.

Colonna is a small town about 10 miles south of Rome.

That is indeed a really nice piece of history.

As far as I know, the only military contribution of my familly was my Grandmother who made parachutes.

She was only 14.

Also Tex, just so you know, Forcemen were trained to use German weapons. Would be totally acceptable to use a Mp40

At this moment in time, I'm looking at an AGM MP40 that Cottoni has for sale, and I'm 90% sure I'm gonna get it. Plus eHobby Asia actually has King Arms MP40 mags in stock. Just checking around for a proper sling and mag pouches.

Just keep in mind that Forcemen would probably not use MP40 pouches, but their pockets...

Or a General Purpose bag, or even a Thompson mag bag (often called M1 Ammunition bag, or just Ammunition bag)

I have the bag; holds 10-12 mags loose, with a shoulder strap... I want the pouches to wear with old style civvies for a resistance/OSS kinda look (again with the Aldo Raine look ). And maybe someday, when I have space to store it all (and a way for my wife not to notice) I'd love to try to put together a "Fallschirmjager" impression.

Someday.

Hehe, no problem then, you can use pouches with both loadouts

And I truly believe half of Aldo Raines character is his accent :P

Oh, I can do the accent, son... It sometimes bubbles up when I'm "explaining" something to my staff...
