    Hi I think so it sort of fits the period from 1854 to about 1915. the rifle will need some work but the equipment should be fine. have a look at the following book French Army 1914 by Histoire & Collections, the uniforms in that for the Zaouve are just the same as our figure but the rifle would need work and you could put a sash around his fez. I hope this helps you.

    Sorry, I described the Tirailleurs uniform. Here are some Zouave options including 1914

    Yes it would be a very simple change. I am not sure about the specific Zouave regiment you mentioned. But uniform was very simliar, if not identical. They wore white pants in the summer and red in the winter.

    The alteration is the rifle. The rifle used in 1914 would have been the i guess.

    I hope this helps.
