I am hoping that there is someone here who has the right connections to help me. I have been looking for the exact burial spot of my great uncle who fought and died with the legion in 1941 in Massua, Eritrea. I have some of his legion records, his name was Morris Lubinski, aka James Broglie.
I would like to find the burial spot. From what I understand he died in the battle of Massawa on the Italian hospital ship Ramb IV, which had already been captured by the British at the time of his death.

I have his matricule number. I have written to every French government office and the Legion museum and I haven't received any relevant details to date.

Thank you so much and happy holidays to all.
