Buistr 08:25, 15 August 2006 (UTC)==Foreign Legion== Nice addition with the uniforms, but a moved it from History to a own section Carl Logan 10:42, 22 July 2006 (UTC)

More nice additions to the uniform section. but I am a bit worried its taking over the article. One more thing: Should there not be a special sub-section of the uníform section for the white kepi or kepi blanc. Carl Logan 19:51, 12 August 2006 (UTC)

Yes perhaps I was piling on the detail too much. Will stop, at least until the article has grown around the uniform section. Thanks for creating this as a separate item.

Re a separate sub section for the kepi blanc. The difficulty here is that this particular icon of the Legion has been around since at least the Mexican Intervention. A subsection devoted to it would need to repeat developments appearing in the main section. Will give this a bit more thought. Regards. Buistr 05:38, 13 August 2006 (UTC)

I am thinking of creating another sub-article like French Foreign Legion in popular culture about the culture of the legion, copying much from the site on the French Wikipedia. Maybe we can incorporate the importance of the kepi blanc there.

I am also trying to create articles about the regiments of the legion, you don't have any information about any difference in uniform between the regiments. Carl Logan 18:46, 14 August 2006 (UTC)


A culture of the Foreign Legion sub-article sounds like a good idea. There was clearly something that elevated the Legion above what a pre-1914 observer unkindly described as "a second rate regiment of German infantry transplanted to Africa". Douglas Porch devotes a good deal of his book "The French Foreign Legion - A Complete History" to analysing what made the Legion different.

Re regimental differences within the Legion: there were suprisingly few of these at least as far as regulation wear and insignia went. The French Army has, at least since 1870, opted for standardisation within branches. Thus (for example) one cuirassier regiment in 1900 would appear like every other one except for the numbers on the collar patches. There was little of the British emphasis on regimental identity through varied facings and elaborate official badges. The Legion was the same - until 1914 the only distinction between the 1sr REI and the 2nd REI was the number 1 or 2 on the collars of tunics, vestes and greatcoats. Between the wars the newly raised 1st REC wore silver buttons and insignia (following French cavalry custom), instead of the bronze of the infanty units. The main regimental distinctions from 1916 to the present day are probably (i) the elaborate forragere lanyards worn in the colours of particular medals when a regiment as a whole has won a number of citations (for example green and red for the Croix de Guerre); and (ii) the originally unofficial regimental, battalion and company badges adopted from the 1930s on at the initiative and expense of the individual unit. In the Legion these badges share as common elements the traditional red and green colours and the grenade. Otherwise they differ greatly in design but usually have some stylised symbol of the unit's past e.g. a dragon for service in Indo-China or a horse-shoe for service as a mounted company in the Sahara. Buistr 08:25, 15 August 2006 (UTC)


cavalry[edit]

You wrote very detailed on the "Polish cavalry charge against tanks". Can you refer with a footnote to your source? (this way nobody will start reediting because he knows better). Actually I also learned about the Polish charging tanks with lances back in school, the usual story about Polish military unfit for the 20th century. Greetings Wandalstouring 00:58, 9 August 2006 (UTC)

Thank you. A footnote link has been added as advised. Buistr 01:13, 19 November 2006 (UTC)

Persian Immortals[edit]

That's rather odd. Granted the picture isn't 100% perfect but it gives a relatively good idea of how they looked. I used this this and this as my reference for the drawing. Feel free to add the image back if you still feel it is appropriate. However do not do so to a point that the anon draws you into a 3RR vio. A block log means more than a picture being displayed on that article.

About your changes to Karl Josef von Bachmann[edit]

First off, do not think I think you are a newbie. I am here for four years and I don't know everything there is to know, so I'd thought you might appreciate if I pointed something out to you. I saw your changes to Karl Josef von Bachmann and noticed that you did not put <ref>-Tags correctly (which is kind of hard if one is not used to it). I tried to fix it, using the {{cite book}}-template but I do not have this book and cannot thus check the correct location of the claims. So I would like to ask you to edit the article and add the page number(s) where you read this to the template, changing the "pages=" value of the template (e.g. changing <ref>{{cite book |title=The French Revolution |author=[[M.J. Sydenham]] |pages=}}</ref> to <ref>{{cite book |title=The French Revolution |author=[[M.J. Sydenham]] |pages=50-51}}</ref>. Thanks in advance and keep up the work! Also, you might want to read the MoS about references at WP:REF or the shorter essay WP:REFB. Regards. So#Why review me! 07:53, 9 August 2008 (UTC)

Tonkinese Rifles[edit]

Thanks for providing the interesting information on the tirailleurs tonkinois after the Sino-French War. It's out of my own period, so I learned a lot from it.

Djwilms (talk) 01:37, 11 December 2009 (UTC)

When I've got time I'll go through the two volumes of Thomazi's Histoire militaire de l'Indochine, which covers every skirmish ever fought in Indochina up to the 1930s. I'm sure there will be some interesting stuff on the post-Sino-French War exploits of the tirailleurs tonkinois. I'll start with the events you mention and move on from there.
Djwilms (talk) 02:24, 14 December 2009 (UTC)

Rifles or Tirailleurs[edit]

Hi Djilms. Further to our earlier exchange, I notice that you and Carl Logan have discussed whether tirailleurs or rifles should be the default term for the varigated "native" infantry regiments of the defunct French Empire. I wonder if a final conclusion was reached on this - as you may have noticed I have more or less alternated between the two desigations in the additions I have made to your article. I have had a number of communications with Carl over the years regarding French military articles - and in particular those relating to the Armee d' Afrique.

The correct translation of tirailleurs is a difficult one - "Rifles" is undoubtedly the most popular one but I have also seen "Skirmishers", "Levies" and "Sharpshooters" used. Even "Light Infantry", although that clearly clashes with the misnamed "Joyeux" of the Infanterie Legere d' Afrique. My personal preference would be for "Tirailleurs" but I will be happy to go along with any decision that may already have been made. Regards Buistr (talk) 03:53, 14 December 2009 (UTC)

I think both of us have been busy on other things, and we haven't taken the debate any further. My preference remains for Tonkinese (Annamese, Senegalese, etc) Rifles, on the grounds of accessibility. I believe that 'Rifles' remains the instinctive 'default' formulation most English-speaking readers are going to type in if they're looking for information. I'm perfectly happy to gloss that, so that the article might be titled 'Tonkinese Rifles (tirailleurs tonkinois)'. But I think the use of the French word tirailleur is out of place in an article title in an English-language encyclopedia, many of whose readers do not know French. Although I can see very clearly where Carl is coming from in his arguments for tirailleur, it would not occur to me, even though I am familiar with the structure of the French colonial forces, to type in 'Senegalese tirailleurs' as my first search choice.

Baloch Regiment[edit]

Hello Buistr. Thanks for appreciating my efforts. As you might have guessed, I am the Official Historian of the Baloch Regiment. I am grateful to you for creating the page. I understand your concern about 'Uniforms and Insignia.' The reason I broke up the section was that the present regiment is an amalgamation of three different regiments, whose uniforms underwent numerous changes over the years. Describing these changes at the appropriate place gives them the proper historical context, while putting them all in one section was confusing the subject. Regards, Beloochee (talk) 13:42, 3 January 2011 (UTC)


Merci[edit]

Thank you for your contribution to The Women's March on Versailles! Your remarks about the palace guards add valuable information and were nicely integrated with the earlier text. Thank you also (very much!) for your kind words about the article as a whole. I see you are deeply interested in military history – would you consider having a look at the Battle of Valmy article? I rewrote it some time ago but remain unsatisfied with it; I keep meaning to get back to it but so far I haven't had the necessary inspiration. Perhaps you will–?

Borrowed your TOC illustration coding[edit]

I borrowed your TOC - illustration wiki syntax for the article U.S. Constitution. It has stood unchallenged for a week, although I am still holding my breath. As the Table of Contents got over two screens long, there was a gaping hole which I believe could turn prospective readers away. Following your example I believe leads the reader into the Table of Contents and towards the text when first opening the article page. Thanks.

Something that you might like...[edit]

Hello Buistr ! As you seem to be interested in all sorts of military units, I thought you'd might be interested by this article which I recently created : Battalion of Light Infantry of Africa

Hello Buistr. I don't know anything about the Companies d'Exclus. I thought Bat' d'Af'/Biribi/French army's colonial bagnes/bataillons disciplinaires/etc. were different names for a single unit : the BILA. Or am I confusing different units? Were the Compagnies d'Exclus a subsection of the Bat' d'Af'/Biribi or is it a completely different unit ? I may have added informations which doesn't belong to Bat' d'Af' but to a similar unit... Feel free to complete the article or to correct my mistakes. I also think about nominating this article for DYK when we'll be sure there's nothing erroneous in it.

Request[edit]

Hi Buistr, I see at Wikipedia:WikiProject_Military_history/African_military_history_task_force that your interests might extend to the Free French Forces in North Africa during World War II. I've been trying to rescue Raphaël Onana, which is a translation from the French-language bio of the same NCO. One issue has been the assertion that he was awarded the Legion of Honour (I presume as a Chevalier) by de Gaulle, something that I would have thought would be easy to verify, but so far I've had no success finding an authoritative list. Sourcing of the article has been quite limited, relying mostly on his autobiography. I wonder if you might be willing to take a look at the article and see what you can do to help out. Thank you, LeadSongDog come howl! 15:49, 25 April 2012 (UTC)

Thank you. I mostly came at it from translation cleanup, but even the French-language wiki had sourcing issues. I was astonished that there's no real authoritative sourcing available online for a complete List of Légion d'honneur recipients by name, comparable to what is available for the List of Victoria Cross recipients. LeadSongDog come howl! 20:44, 25 April 2012 (UTC)
Thank you for checking. Did you find anything about the units mentioned? LeadSongDog come howl! 13:45, 29 April 2012 (UTC)
Well, that's helpful, anyhow. The article at fr:1er régiment de Tirailleurs du Cameroun would benefit from those sources you mention. That should be firmed up a bit before translation.LeadSongDog come howl! 13:45, 30 April 2012 (UTC)

Spahi photograph[edit]

Hello Eliedion. Thank you for adding the very interesting 1913 photograph of the Paris amusement park scene to the Spahi article. Unfortunately the figure shown is an Algerian tirailleur (infantryman), not a spahi (cavalryman) from Senegal. I have accordingly moved it to the article on tirailleurs. Thanks again. Buistr (talk) 19:14, 28 January 2013 (UTC)

Thank you for your message. The source indicated that it was a spahi soldier. Thanks. Eliedion Plume pen w.png(d) 20:44, 28 January 2013 (UTC)
Are they spahi soldiers? Best regards. Eliedion Plume pen w.png(d) 15:17, 29 January 2013 (UTC)
Another very good photo! Thanks for posting it. These are tirailleurs senegalais - that is to say infantrymen from what was then French West Africa. They were a separate corps from the spahis senegalais (cavalry) and wore dark blue uniforms instead of red. Detachments from these colonial regiments were brought to France in 1913 to participate in the annual Bastille Day parade. It was the first time that these soldiers had been seen in Paris and they attracted much attention. See the tirailleurs senegalais article for more pictures and background.

Hello! What's translate Wissmanntruppe? Senior Strateg (talk) 14:17, 2 March 2013 (UTC)

Hachi editor issue[edit]

That one editor keeps adding the false material about "spirits reuniting" to the Hachi article. That is all the person has ever done according to their edit history. I've politely asked the person to stop before and a little less politely done so again. If this person does not stop, would you consider backing me up if I start a complaint? JayHubie (talk) 06:18, 12 July 2013 (UTC)

I don't think that this is deliberate vandalism but rather the actions of a dog-lover who is distressed at the thought of a notably faithful pooch dying alone in the snow. The original Japanese film does actually conclude with Hachi running through a luminescent wood to reunite with his owner. By contrast the Swedish/American remake settles for an ambiguous ending apparently intended neither to upset viewers who believe "dogs go to heaven" nor irritate those who consider that they die uncomprehendingly like any other animal. Emotive stuff. As far as the Wiki-article goes I think that a factual summary along the lines of "dog dreams of happy past; dog is shown asleep as train approaches; professor comes out of station; dog and professor embrace; dog is shown dead, camera swings into night sky" would be the best compromise. Sorry not to be more helpful. Buistr (talk) 08:49, 12 July 2013 (UTC)

Rasputin[edit]

Hello Buistr, I like your changes in the article on Rasputin. May be you like to "collaborate" with me? I have a lot of details on Rasputin, studying his life for almost half a year. I would like to add my details, coming from Dutch experts on Rasputin, but I need some help from someone who is a native speaker, and most important, not too mystical. If you agree, I will supply you with details to improve the article. In my view it is important because the article is read each day by several hundreds of people and it will affect articles on Rasputin in other languages. Tell me if you like the idea. Regards from Amsterdam.07:14, 13 October 2013 (UTC)

Hello Taksen. Yes I would be glad to copy-edit any material that you wish to add to the Rasputin article. I suggest that you place these additions on either your talk page or in a specially created sand box and let me have the link. Regards Buistr (talk) 07:40, 13 October 2013 (UTC)

Look here [1]. Your alias Buistr has a Dutch flavour. Where did you get it from? Taksen (talk) 11:10, 13 October 2013 (UTC)

Hello again Taksen. I have copy-edited the draft article concentrating on spelling, grammar and English language style. I do not have any special access to reference material for this period so have only made minor changes to the actual content. Since you have clearly done a great deal of research please feel free to revert my edits. There are a couple of points where I have raised queries in bolded text. You have done a very good rework of the article - especially in view of the sometimes lurid nature of the topic and the often contradictory sources available. Best wishes Buistr (talk) 04:56, 14 October 2013 (UTC)
P.S. Dutch colleagues have told me that "Buist" is a not uncommon name in Holland but it is also used in Scotland where my family came from - rather unglamorously a form of paint used to mark sheep!

Hello Buistr, thank you for taking a look at the text and the compliments. I seldon came across such a difficult subject, but I learned a lot about pre-revolutionary Russia and my view on history and historians changed. I still need to adjust my text with the latest "improvements" from the real article on Rasputin. I am not sure every change in the past three months can be taken as a serious improvement. [2] Which ones do you think are interesting and can be added without doubt?Taksen (talk) 10:24, 15 October 2013 (UTC) In the mean time I uploaded my version, the one you corrected and added some of the improvements. Now we can go on there (it really became to difficult to keep track of the changes on both versions). I suppose you will keep on eye on what happens in the next few days.Taksen (talk) 13:45, 15 October 2013 (UTC)

Hello Buistr, I prefer not to use my sandbox2 anymore. I agree with your changes. Could add your them to the real article? Rasputin was against this war. I did not explain it very well.Taksen (talk) 17:01, 17 October 2013 (UTC)

Tunisian Army[edit]

Thanks for your message Buistr. I looked at the material dealing with the creation of the new army in 1956 and compared it with the information I was translating from the French Wikipedia; they seemed to be virtually identical. Happy to have you restore the material, with citations, just don't remove material that is already there and valid. You may be interested to have a look at this week's Signpost, which drew my attention to Tunisia. Also, saw your complaint about the unreferenced list of equipment, which I think you said seemed like something that would not be released. Are you aware of the IISS Military Balance?- they yearly print all this stuff for all the armies of the world. Drop me an e-mail via the emailthisuser if you'd like to see an extract. Cheers and thanks Buckshot06 (talk) 01:47, 21 December 2013 (UTC)

  • Will do. Cheers.Buistr (talk) 01:54, 21 December 2013 (UTC)
    • Looks like the same guy did Tunisian Land Army, because some of it is exactly the stuff I've translated into English at the other page. I've moved the TLA article to Tunisian Army, citing COMMONNAME and WP:UE. It will need to be throughly cleaned up and referenced. Buckshot06 (talk) 02:21, 21 December 2013 (UTC)

Last formed surviving troops[edit]

Thanks for your edit summary. Could you maybe rephrase the sentence though? To the uninformed reader (such as myself), it doesn't make sense. --Tóraí (talk) 11:03, 14 January 2014 (UTC)

Probably not necessary now - another editor has picked up duplicated references within the lead section to the last stand and has (correctly) removed the first passage. For the record though "formed" troops was a term meaning that they were in ranks or a square or (as in this case) a back to back group. Anything of at least a semi-organised nature, as opposed to a rabble of fleeing individuals. I presume this was the reason for including the word in the original text. Regards (Buistr (talk) 19:13, 14 January 2014 (UTC))
