Dear Nancy, dear Yann

One you have found the decret number --thanks to the guideline from Bernard Flam -- you can go the French National Archives to deduct the file number to request
This is a little bit labyrinthal (we are in France right :) ), but in real this is very effective

In your case, here is the next step : 99375 x 28 and you can learn he was soldat at the "French Legion Etrangère" (so they have also a file)
as well as a city : Boulogne sur Seine

So next steps would be
1/ Search for the 99375x28 File that can be tons of information (pictures, handwriten mail, name of the full family etc...)
2/ Write the French Legion Etrangere (in French sorry)
Bureau des anciens de la Légion étrangère
COMMANDEMENT DE LA LEGION ETRANGERE
Quartier Viénot - B.P. 21 355
13 784 AUBAGNE CEDEX
3/ Look at the Census from Boulogne sur Seine to find a possible family (can be long without the exact address street number etc...)

Hope that helps
regards
David
