Correct, 3e REI. On the regimental flag one can see the blue ribbon of the US Presidential Citation received during WW2, as the RMLE (Régiment de Marche de la Légion Étrangère). On the second picture we see Col Lalande, a WW2 veteran with the Free French, who commanded strong-point “Isabelle” during the battle of DBP and Gen Cogny commanding the Army in Tonkin.
