Saint Georges 2013 of the 1er REC

Yesterday, the French Foreign Legion media center published a video of the 1st Foreign Cavalry Regiment (1er REC) celebrating the anniversary of Saint Georges Day, a regimental holiday.

Saint Georges, a patron of cavalry, were celebrated at Orange (a town in the south of France, where the 1er REC is based) on April 23, a week before Camerone Day. The ceremony was presided by General Clément-Bollée, a former head of the 1er REC and Divisional General de Saint Chamas, also a former head of the 1er REC and actual commander of the Foreign Legion. Five persons were decorated. In the evening, the Music Band of the Foreign Legion was playing for legionnaires and inhabitants of Orange.
