(Francs - Tireurs et Partisans de la Main d'Oeuvre Immigree - French Sharpshooters and Partisans of the Immigrant Work Force). During an action in the Lyon suburb of Villeurbanne, fighters of the "Carmagnole" unit held the area for several days, allowing the inhabitants to mount an insurrection prior to the arrival of the Allied armies' forces.
