Celtic Tigers Division (Irish, Scots & Welsh)

The Free State has bandied together a set of ‘Celtic’ Battalions into a ‘Celtic Tigers’ Division which is effectively being used as a guard type unit to turnover crucial enagements. With the IRA and other components it is well suited to lend forces to assist ALFIES activties.

Wild Geese Battalion

 Irish Free State regualrs sent to keep England busy while the Free State absorbs the Six Counties. The reason for their Germanic appearance is simply that the Irish did adopt a German look including the Stalhelm between the war only getting more British looking uniforms with the outbreak of Wordl War Two.
