Late 1910s, Haitian Gendarmerie

Post  Admin on Thu 26 Feb 2009, 4:46 am

After yet another round of unrest the US stepped into Haiti to 'restore' order.
They trained a new paramilitary force, the Haitian Gendarmerie.

Photos into the 1920's

Post  Les-Art on Fri 04 Sep 2009, 9:19 pm

Hi Guys,
Found some interesting photos which will continue on from those previously posted to show that the US Army supported this force with equipment to keep it up to date. Obviously older issue US Army stocks and not the up to the minute stuff but newer than the 1910's photos.

Photos from a French publication in 1926 and English one sometime in the 1920's;

Nice photos,i would assume that these US supplied uniforms and perhaps canvas ammo pouches would be worn during WW2. Pat

The others you wanted are above as mentioned in my PM sorry for the delay, but got there in the end.
