Just noticed one of the comments for the video on the youtube site.

" the old soldier has the french "Légion d'honneur" the highest French order of merit for military and civil merits."

Hi Bags,
it's been a while. How are you? The French did give out a few Légions d'honneur for those who fought during WWII.

Croix de guerre too. She was naturalised French during the war, joined the secret services. Based in Morocco and did a mission to Lisbon.
Then she joined the French Air Force. Lieutenant i believe. She owned a castle in Dordogne (château des Milandes).

Joséphine Baker is also renowned for having adopted many children of diverse origins. A great African American lady by all accounts.
