Zwawa (transformed into the French Zouave), were Algerian tribes that in 1830 constituted the embryo of the indigenous troops of the French army. Originally the Zouave corps consisted of two battalions to which a third was later added. The Zouaves regiment of the Guard was created the 23rd December 1854 and received its baptism of fire in Crimea. Paint: Fez: (or chechia) red with yellow woollen ribbon and knot.
