When are you talking about? Interwar, or post war?

yes of course...during the Revolutionnary and Napoleonic period from 1797 to 1814...

if not there were only 3 short-lived battalions raised the 1st may 1945 by the French Authorities from German POW's and volunteers to be sent in their respective areas including one from Austrians raised in Riom

1er Bataillon de Volontaires Rhénans disbanded 12th november 1945
1er Bataillon de Volontaires Sarrois disbanded 16th december 1945
1er Bataillon de Volontaires Autrichiens disbanded 31st december 1945


I see that it exists a german-speaking page about the battalion
