Régiments de marche de volontaires étrangers, also known as RMVE or Marching Regiments of Foreign Volunteers were temporary formations of the French Foreign Legion organized from Foreign volunteers during World War II . These regiments were formed on 16 September 1939:
These regiments were not assigned Legion "cadres" from Sidi bel-Abbès to the exception of a couple of Legion officers, however crests carried the Legion Colors inverted and they celebrated Camerone day. These legion regiments had large numbers of Spanish Republicans, essentially Spaniards from the Retirada (French: Retirada), foreign Jewish volunteers and other foreigners from Nazi Germany, Austria, Poland and Czechoslovakia. These men were considered volunteers for the duration and many who escaped the fall of France were allowed to join their respective national armies before the Liberation.
