I am actually trying to assess these figures for Hungarian River Forces infantry from WWII.  Pictures would be a big hat, but failing that what's their headgear?

Picture of greens



Other options, WW1 East Africa German sailors,



Franco-Prussian French Sailors (suitably de-pompommed)



Cheers

I know it's a long shot, but would the's guys suffice for Polish naval Infantry in the September campaign of 39? IABSM suggests you need a platoon of them for one of the scenarios. I carn't find any pics so I'm guessing naval caps and greatcoats.

Cheers.

Hello Jon

Here are some posts on it - http://www.warrelics.eu/forum/polish-armed-forces-second-republic-si-y-zbrojne-ii-rzeczypospolitej-polskiej-1918-1939/naval-rifle-regiments-14920/

You could use the WW1 German East Africa sailors for early war types

or WW1 Early British in greatcoats with the visor shaved off the cap:-



or just plain Polish troops with a paper square naval flap glued to the back of the jumper.

Cheers

Many thanks for that, yes the WW1 tommies may just have it, i'll add a few of the WW2 French firing rifle in greatcoat with adrian helmet to add further variety. Thanks the photo's are great. All I could find was a Del Prado toy soldier which looked looked spurious to say the least.



Cheers
