  4. 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
  5. 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

    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
