    Thanks Hughes. It seems to be a regional leaflet, as Paris etc doesn't get a mention.

    Exactly, it is for the north of France.
    The beginning of the waffen ss in France is the 23 th of july 1943.

    Thanks Michel. I'm surprised that the waffen ss were not active in France until 1943. It's not my field, anyway I've learnt something there.

    A few more French items. These are brassards and badges of the Croix de Fue (Cross of Fire) organisation, this started off life as a Nationalist ex-serviceman's organisation in the late 1920's but was banned by the pro-communist Popular Front Government in 1936. The PSF, a political party which came from the CdF ,could be described as a precursor of the later Vichy Government . The items shows are quite common in France as the organisation was huge, however, the small gold beret badge is quite hard to get.
