Equipment[edit]

Did the Devils Brigade use US weapons and equipment, British, or a mix?

The second last link is a troll, it has nothing to do with the topic...

Thanks. I've deleted it. Next time you see something like that, feel free to be bold and edit. Indefatigable 20:07, 3 January 2006 (UTC)

An explanation of my delete of the "Rhineland campaign". The way the para was written it appeared to indicate that the Franco-Italian border defense WAS the Rhineland campaign. ("in what is called the R.C.") That statement was not true and was misleading. The link indicates where and when the Rhineland campaign took place. However for awarding of campaign streamers and campaign service ribbons, the deployment of the 1st Airborne Task Force was listed in this campaign by the U.S. Army, a side-show at best. I left it in the lists of campaign service because technically, the list is correct.--Buckboard 21:35, 6 April 2006 (UTC)

See http://www.canada.com/reginaleaderpost/news/story.html?id=20ee9839-0698-4db3-b03f-ba109b54e2a2&k=98001 for a Canada Depatartment of National Defense decision to redact references to the Devil's Brigade from information released under the Canada Access to Information Act relating to JTF2. The redaction included references to the historical relationship between the two units, including the name of the SSF, and references to the SSF's operations. The justification was that 'the words Special Service Force would be injurious to the conduct of international affairs, the defence of Canada or any state allied or associated with Canada or the detection, prevention or suppression of subversive or hostile activities. In addition, the name of the First Special Service Force and the locations where it fought were censored because such details are considered part of advice provided to government.'

This may not be relevant to the entry on the Devil's Brigade directly, but is certiainly relevant to information contained in the article, which has now been deemed a threat to national security.

In the paragraph about disbandment the part about the 14 German soldier's bodies being found seems out of place. Perhaps someone can reword it or move that section to another place. --24.109.16.226 (talk) 08:40, 23 November 2007 (UTC)

Member names[edit]

Please show the names of the members my Grandfather was one and this group deserves too be shown respect for the things they did. aside from Quintin terrantino's movie. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 99.70.42.246 (talk) 07:34, 14 March 2010 (UTC)

While I agree that the men that served are deserving of respect, this article is meant to be encyclopedic, and not a memorial or receptacle for every piece of information and trivia. Beyond that, there are thousands of names, so it's simply impractical to record them all here. There are a number of well written articles and memorials on the internet, which, if relevant, can be added to the External Links section on the page. And there are a number of other representations of the 1st SSF in the media including a Devil's Brigade film, and a number of documentaries as noted in the article itself. - Jonathon A H (talk) 15:50, 14 March 2010 (UTC)
