Information Wanted regarding the Legion Etrangere Civile #france

Paul Gottlieb

While in Paris in 1940 after fleeing Vienna, my father obtained a formal membership certificate from the so-called Legion Etrangere Civile.
I think the document is a fake or forgery, perhaps used to avoid a French internment camp. I can find no information about such a "civil" organization, either as a separate entity or as part of the French Foreign Legion. Any information would be much appreciated. Thank you. Paul Gottlieb.
