- Tabor (Morocco)
A tabor is a Moroccan military term used to describe a formation of three of four
goums. A goum in this case is equivalent to a Company (military unit)and a tabor would thereby be equivalent to a Battalion.
Tabors were created by the French during
World War IIas a display of power because the Germans, after having overrun France, limited the size of their military forces. One way of getting around these regulations was the creation of Colonial forces (i.e. "tabors"). These Moroccan units would later go on to fight in North Africaonce Operation TORCHbegan and in the fight for Sicily( Operation HUSKY) and Mainland Italy. The 4th Tabor of Goums were used in the Fight for Troinain central Sicily.
