Re: FRENCH SOLDIER

Olivier> Many thanks for your helpful reply. I believe Rene died in Bordeaux in 1942 so do you think his pension file be held at the Vincennes military archives?

Kind regards

Re: FRENCH SOLDIER

<t>I know this is 7 years after my original posting but I have only just discovered the identity of the man in the two pictures. His name was Rene Lucien Claudius Gravier, who was the nephew of my great grandfather, Albert Joseph Lallemant. Rene was born in Meudon in 1886, the illegitimate son of Ma...

Re: FRENCH SOLDIER

<t>Astrid> Many thanks for all the extra information you've found. Unfortunately I have no record of any ancestor in Lyon. As you say, he must have been stationed there at the time the picture was taken. I wonder if anyone knows which French regiments might have been stationed there just prior to WW...

Re: FRENCH SOLDIER

<t>Astrid> Many thanks for your very informative reply.<br/> <br/> Unfortunately the 1st photo doesn't have a date on it. The picture is in the form of a postcard which has been trimmed down. The only clue to its age is the partial name and address of the photographer, ? Chavanes, ? 8, Rue De La Bar...

Re: FRENCH SOLDIER

Bernard> Many thanks for your message. The surname could be spelt as either Lallement or Lallemand. Another possible surname is Pasquier as this was my great grandfather's mother's name.

Kind regards

Re: FRENCH SOLDIER

Peter> Unfortunately not. I have a suspicion that he might possibly be an unknown younger brother of my great grandfather so his surname would be Lallemant, but I don't know his first name. He would have been born in Paris in about 1875.

Re: FRENCH SOLDIER

<t>Mireille> Thank you very much for your reply to my enquiry. This was very helpful. All I need to find out now is who the picture is actually of! He's definitely a relative of mine, as these pictures belonged to my great grandfather Albert Joseph Lallemant (who also fought in WW1) but they are not...

Re: FRENCH SOLDIER

<r>It was suggested on another forum that I post here to see if anyone can identify which regiment(s) and what rank the gentleman in the pictures below was in. I know that he must have been in North Africa at one time as he is wearing a Colonial Medal (with Maroc bar) in the second picture. Also, as...
