  3. I would appreciate it if any of our Belgian members could help with the following. How easy is it to obtain copies personnel files from the Musée royal de l'Armée et d'Histoire Militaire? I have looked at their web page however the copy costs if I have interpreted them correctly are high? Officer in question Capitaine - Edgard Emile Telesphore Rene Lefevre. Thank you

  7. Chris Thank you. I have only just started collected verifiable French medals & therefore a novice to the workings of the French Army. I am learning a considerable amount thanks to responses like yours & the forum. Look forward to hearing from you. Adrian
  8. Chris Thank you. Now I am really confused. I need to go through everything again!!! Could you tell me were you got the information on the 7th Battalion? Thanks Arian
  9. Further to my research into Colonel MARCEL VICTOR LABORDE I am looking to confirm his clasps to the Colonial Medal. He was awarded three, two confirmed ALGERIE & MAROC confirmed on service record. The third is I believe either MAROC 1925 or MAROC 1925-1926 for service with the 9th Zouaves Rif War. Attached is a photograph of his Colonial Medal. Would any members have any information that would confirm the third clasp & which one would most likely be the oriental type? Probably impossible!!!! Thanks for looking. Adrian
  10. Chris MARCEL VICTOR LABORDE 3rd Battalion 4th Zouaves - See attached images from his service record.
  11. Have found the 4th Zouaves Regimental History online however it only covers their actions in France. I cannot locate any information on which Battalion? went to Morocco 27th February 1916 – 1st February 1918 & took part in actions at Beni-Mellal & Toumzit. Could any members point me in the right direction for information. Thanks for looking. Adrian
