Have a Google around. The Galibier model was introduced after the war - yours looks like an early serial number so you're looking around 1946 or so I'd guess.

http://www.classiclightweights.co.uk/Paris.html

There's a nice one in classic lightweights that's newer than yours - 1951 with a serial number in the 7000s

Look after it won't you:D

Is that a braze on for a front mech? Maybe a Condor built one?

Yes it is a braze on. Have just seen a similar bike on the 'retro bike of the month' section of retro bike.

Well I wouldn't be surprised knowing the French, look at Citroen, very futuristic.

Duh! :oops: Just read the Classic lightweights, only french in name :oops: That font features in the photo's from 1947 though.
