Chasseurs Ardennais - Durso (1940)

The Bataillon de Chasseurs Ardennais (English: Ardennes Chasseur Battalion) is an infantry formation in the Land Component of the Belgian Armed Forces. The unit, currently at battalion strength, is a part of the Motorized Brigade. Within the context of military history, the French language term chasseur (literally "hunter") usually denotes light or mounted infantry. The unit was formed in 1933 when the 10th Regiment of the Line was renamed the Regiment de Chasseurs Ardennais, which it remained until 2011 when it was reduced to a battalion. It is named after the heavily forested and hilly Ardennes region of Belgium.
This nice set of Chasseurs Ardennais composition soldiers was produced by Durso in 1940. I think it was one of the best works of Mr. Klimov.
