    Hi Kris, yes we were, portuguese troops were posted in two fronts, france, angola and mozambique.
    In france we were about 50000 strong, and 3000+ protecting the colonies.

    Here's an interesting linky to the Portuguese forces deployed in Europe and Africa during WW1. An interesting read.
