If it is a US fire alarm it requires a 9 Volt battery.
If these are not available to you in France post here that you need one and I or someone else will mail you one.
Whoever sends it first should post here so we do not send a 100!

Nine volt batteries are unique, no other US battery looks like it. If you can, post a picture of the terminal where the battery hooks in. If it's a nine volt, we'll know right away.

That thing is old. Standard smoke alarms here have used a rectangular 9v battery for years. They recommend changing batteries every 6 months, the alarm every 3-4 years. They are <$5, I wouldn't trust it, just replace for your safety.

That is correct that thing has no value and you should get a new one.

Just for what its worth dept:

"If smoke alarms in your home are more than ten years old, NFPA recommends replacing them as well.
Why? According to NFPA, aging smoke alarms don't operate as efficiently and are often the source for nuisance alarms. Older smoke alarms are estimated to have a 30% probability of failure within the first ten years. Newer smoke alarms do better, but should be replaced after ten years. Unless you know that the smoke alarms are new, replacing them when moving into a new residence is also recommended by NFPA."

I clipped this from an Internet site. I would assume that it is probably applicable for detectors in our Airstreams also.

just my two pence. today i was at my grandmothers and i found a very old smoke detector quite simialr as yours that takes the same battery model. In fact I have two of them next to me. However, obtaining them will be hard as they are Mercury (Hg) batteries that probably wasnt used beyond the 60s. I have to say I am shcoked at Grandma for not changing the batteries since, nor getting a new detector. I replaced that today.
