Introduction

The commanding officer's and service pennants of the French Army, as prescribed by the 1933 regulations, are shown in a series of 20 plates, adapted from official models published in 1937, entitled Les uniformes de l'Armé françise, 1939-1940, edited by François Vauvillier (Paris, the author, 1989).
They are similar, with slight modifications, to the pennants used before and shown in Grand Larousse Illustré du XXe siècle, 1928.
