French Quote at the camp in Go Tell The Spartans


I saw this movie years ago on TV and now I want to try and remember the quote that was in french at the camp where the last scene takes place. The quote was over the graveyard where French soldiers were buried from the French - Indo China war.

Does anybody remember the quote.

Etranger dites aux spartiatis que nous demeurons ici par obeissance a leur lois.

Stranger, when you find us lie here, go tell the Spartans we obeyed their orders.

"Come home with your shields or come home upon them." The statement is purportedly from the wife of a Spartan soldier.

Cool, that's what Leonidas's wife says to Leonidas before Thermopylae in "300".
