Hello Adrian,

 

There is, unfortunately, no official list of awards to foreigners (non-French nationals).

The style of the breast star indicates that the award was an early one (1964-1980). Your best bet would be to write to the French Military attache in Lisbon. He might have the necessary archives available.

The alternative would be to write to the French Foreign Office who certainly have the archives, but no obligation to answer....

I  sincerely hope this information will help you. It would be nice of you to report here the result of your possible inquieries.

Veteran
