Sorry, In my first answer I had forgoten to mention the 21st, 22nd and 23rd
Regiments of Foreign Volonteers. Most of the 22nd were Jews, 30% Polish
Jews. It was probably the same for the 21st. They were formed in Barcares.

And I don't know how I could forget a very important source: you will have
informations concerning Jews in the French army during WWII by writing to:
U.E.V.A.C.J.E.A. (Union des Engages Volontaires Anciens Combattants Juifs
39-45, leurs Enfants et Amis):
union-des-engages-volontaires@wanadoo.fr

They have a Revue "Notre volonte" where it may be possible (?) to ask if
somebody met your cousin.

A cousin of my mother's was in the Polish Legion of the French
army in WW II. He was captured and spent the war in a series
of POW camps, each more harsh since he was an escaper.
Are there any records of the Legion and of POW camps.
