Did Algerie make it to the Pacific, though? I thought IRL she was scuttled to prevent her from falling into German hands?
I'm sure you are right. I recall seeing a list of Free French ships and there were a couple of CAs. Probably not Algerie though.
Memory fails (yet again), I'll see if I can find the data.
