THE DEVIL'S BRIGADE RE-BORN
Disbanded in late 1944, the FIRST SPECIAL SERVICE FORCE is re-formed in July 1945. This time to include British and english speaking German volunteers selected from elite units.
My kitbash represents a Black Devil Scout/Observer of the FSSF on a recon mission in the area around BALIALYSTOK, POLAND.
He is armed with a fully automatic M2 carbine mounted with a L2 INFRARED sight. It is powered by an ALKALINE battery providing the NVD with 10 hrs. of continous power.
[Thru the efforts of British and German engineers/scientists from the ZEISS Optics Labratory in LEIPZIG, an improved NIGHT VISION DEVICE using INFRARED technology was developed and field tested in the Summer of 1945.]
