    Dear Gentlemen,


    I have this Military Identification Tags to Fareh Issa:




    Until now I got only this information about him:

    " In the Official Journal of April 30, 1930, mention is made of Fareh Issa, sergeant, number 66, 1st Mixed Regiment of Madagascar, in the table of advancement for the year 1930 to the rank of warrant officer (adjudant in French). He was appointed to the rank of warrant officer by ministerial decision on 30 September, effective 1 October 1930.


    In the 1937 Official Bulletin of the Colonial Office, there is a man named Fareh Issa, warrant officer of the Senegalese Tirailleurs Regiment of the French Somali Coast, appointed to the Order of the Star of Anjuan at the rank of knight."


    And yesterday, I found his name here: TH_BTSomalis (free.fr) as a corporal.
