Does anyone know of any good links on German soldiers who served in the postwar French Foreign Legion?

Numerous ex Wehrmacht and SS were welcomed by and served in the Legion. There was a policy that SS officers could not serve in the Legion but many did under alias.

From memory this topic has been previously discussed somewhere in this Forum but I cannot recall details.

Perhaps check archive or host.
