2. "Louis Saint Louis-les-Bitche" is apparently the true name of the man more commonly known as "Bon Chance Louie". According to French Foreign Legion records, a "Bon Chance Louis", born in the Saint Louis-les-Bitche in Lorraine joined the Legion in 1914. Bon Chance Louis' service record indicates that he served both in North Africa and Europe from 1914-1920. This information agrees with that available for Bon Chance Louie from other sources.
