Hi! I saw your post on Ivan Belyaev and wondered if you ever heard of Dimitri Amilakhvari? He was the heir to Georgian nobility under the Russian Empire who fled and ended up joining the French Foreign Legion where he fought in Norway down to North Africa and helped formulate occupational resistance against the Nazis. Sadly, he died in 1942 at El Alamein but he’s well loved by the French!

Italian volunteers went to fight against the Germans in France,
composing, under command of Peppino Garibaldi, nephew of Giuseppe, the
so-called Legion Garibaldina, Legion Etranger.

Only
in may 1915, with the entrance of Italy in war the legion was dissolved
to allow the return of volunteers to the regio army.
