“HONOR TO THE OLD SOLDIERS, COURAGE FOR THE ROOKIES” – GROUP PHOTO OF WORLD WAR I ERA FRENCH SOLDIERS

military group 3

military group 4 This vintage real photo postcard features a group of World War I era French soldiers. Two men in the front row are holding a sign. The men are part of the 148th regiment (?). The text on the sign is related to a French military slogan that states “Honneur aux anciens, courage aux bleus”. This roughly translates to “honor to the old soldiers, courage for the rookies”. In French, “bleu” means “rookie”. The slogan refers to the historical fact that in the late 1700’s, rookies wore blue uniforms, while more veteran soldiers wore white uniforms. This vintage postcard has excellent clarity and is in very good condition.
