The 1er Régiment de Spahis (1er RS) is the inheritor of a type of locally recruited North African cavalry, the Spahis. They were recruited in Algeria, Tunisia, Morocco and Senegal.

The 1er RS is the inheritor of the Moroccan Spahis, specifically the régiment de marche de spahis marocains (RMSM) which was created in 1914 and fought in both world wars.

Hence, they wear the Cherifian star of Morocco on their képi, side cap, sleeve and epaulets.

Women used to be banned from crowd control units, both in the police and gendarmerie. They are now accepted both in the CRS and gendarmerie mobile units.

I think Spike Milligan described them as ' Rapist by appointment to the allies.' During the Italian campaign.
 
Those were Goumiers. Apparently the origin of the Goons' name.
