PI-SP03 Tirailleur Senegailes, 1914 1/9th scale resin bust sculpted by Le-van Quang.

Brief history: Tirailleur Senegailes was a corps of the French army recruited from the French possessions in West & Central Africa.  Formed in 1857, these indigenous troops served in a number of colonial wars including the conquest of Morocco (1907-1912).

But their largest contribution came during WWI, when more than 200,000 'Sénégalais' fought for France. 135 000 were sent on the Western Front. 30 000 perished and many more wounded or invalid.
