  1. Hello, As an adjudant-chef, the military archive of Marcel-Yves Le Bihan should be in the centre des archives du personnel militaire in Pau (France).

  6. Hello, If you look at the conscription list for the Alpes-Maritimes department (Nice), you will see that there is only one man named PAULIAN. http://www.basesdocumentaires-cg06.fr/archives/indexRM.php On this list, first names are Jules Évariste and identification number is 30. So the is absolutely no doubt that this tag owner was Jules-Évariste Paulian. Best regards. Francois

  8. Hello, He is not on any data base (leonore, geneanet, memoire des hommes, etc). He is not mentionned in the historique du 5e regiment d'infanterie coloniale. I think the only way to get more information is to study his personnel file in the military archives (file GR 4 YE 2863 in Vincennes). Best regards. Francois
  9. Hello, According to the Annuaire de l'armée française (1907 and 1911), there was only one lieutenant BOUDET in the tirailleurs sénégalais.
