    When France had an empire it controlled a vast region called French West Africa and other parts such as the Ivory Coast and Algeria. France lost 6 million or so men in the First World War leading to labour shortages so migrant workers were brought in from the colonies.

    They are from the various colonies that France formed in Africa. They would be Mauritania, Senegal, French Sudan (now Mali), French Guinea (now Guinea), Côte d'Ivoire, Upper Volta (now Burkina Faso), Dahomey (now Benin) and Niger.
