Default Help identify a Gallia pistol

Hi everyone. I have this little pocket pistol they my Grandfather brought back from France at the end of WWII. It is registered as a "Gallia", however I cannot locate any information on a "Gallia" handgun. I am wondering if this is really something else? I am trying to get a solid identification on it. Has anyone ever seen one of these before? Thanks!

Greg
