Information Provided by Michael D. Bulmash:

A stamp commemorating the Legion of French Volunteers Against Bolshevism (Légion des Volontaires Français Contre le Bolchévisme). The Legion of French Volunteers Against Bolshevism was a collaborationist French militia founded July 8, 1941. It was officially known to the Germans as Infantry Regiment (Infanteriereregiment) 638. It had no formal link with the Vichy regime, even though it was recognized as an "association of public usefulness" by Pierre Laval's government in February 1943. Philippe Pétain, head of state of Vichy France, personally disapproved of Frenchmen wearing German uniforms. The Legion of French Volunteers Against Bolshevism volunteered to fight against the USSR on the Eastern Front.
