Wounded Algerian soldier receiving a medal from Gaston Doumergue, Minister for Colonies, outside the hospital used during the First World War for treating colonial troops, originally the Cochinchina Pavilion (Cochinchina, now in South Vietnam, was a French colony 1862-1954) in the Jardin d'Agronomie Tropicale, or Garden of Tropical Agronomy, in the Bois de Vincennes in the 12th arrondissement of Paris, postcard from the nearby Musee de Nogent sur Marne, France. During the war the colonial hospital treated over 4800 patients and it closed on 1st May 1919. The garden was first established in 1899 to conduct agronomical experiments on plants of French colonies. In 1907 it was the site of the Colonial Exhibition and many pavilions were built or relocated here. The site is listed as a historic monument. Picture by Manuel Cohen / Musee de Nogent sur Marne
