    4th ZOUAVES

    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
  2. Hendrik Thank you much appreciated. Can I ask were did you find his Commander date as I have been attempting to unsuccessfully find this? also the mention of the Croix de Guerre would this still indicate a 1914-1915 date? Thank you for your help. Adrian

  10. Padelman Thank you for the information it is appreciated. I contacted the seller & he said it was not Franco era? Is the price OK? Adrian

  12. Odulf thank you for the information it is appreciated. Unfortunately the medal group is not mine.

This officer had previous service in the Royal Netherlands Naval Reserve in WW2 being captured by the Japanese in Batavia 4th March 1942. Adrian
  13. Requesting members help in sourcing a mounted pair as attached picture? The Cross for Order and Peace does not have to have any date clasps. Adrian
  14. Lambert The recipient's service papers are available from the South African Archives. Contact South African Researcher Dewald Nel dewald@nelantiques.co.za who should be able to retrieve the record for you. Obviously there is a fee. He does my South African Navy research & I would highly recommend him. Adrian
