A (very) ceremonial uniform

Some WW1 Photographs...

Wauh! That’s a uniform! The point is that I don’t know anything about this man, his rank and his unit. All I know is that this picture was taken in Tréveray (Meuse) during the war, or just after. This man belongs to a French colonial unit, the 24th (as indicated by the crescent and the number on his collar).

Here’s a detail of his medails, from left to right:

– Officier de la Légion d’Honneur

– Croix de Guerre with 5 stars and 4 palms

– Four unidentified ribbons

– Fourragère with moroccan star and arabic text.

Who will be able to tell me more about this man?
