History of the 5th Foreign Regiment

Since its dissolution in July 1, 2000, the 5th Foreign Regiment (5e Régiment étranger, 5e RE) has been the last disbanded regiment of the French Foreign Legion. Nicknamed “Regiment du Tonkin” or “Genie Legion”, the 5e RE has a long and truly remarkable history. I have tried to collect some data and photos and made its own page for those interested in.
