On 7 September 2015, a detachment of the 3rd Foreign Infantry Regiment (3e REI) participated in Brazil’s Independence Day Military Parade, which took place in the city of Macapá. The 3e REI is based in French Guiana, a country bordering with Brazil.
The Foreign Legion Museum, placed in Aubagne within Legion’s HQ of 1st Foreign Regiment (1er RE), organized a temporary exhibition dedicated to the badges/insignias of the French Foreign Legion from all decades. The exbition is opened to the public since September 18 and continues on view through 20 March 2016.
Two new designs inspired by the French Foreign Legion were launched to be available on t-shirts, sweetshirts and hoodies. They are also available also on other goods. The designs were created for three reasons. First, to promote the Foreign Legion and the legionnaires to public. Second, to bring you something you would like to wear. Third, to support this website and help it to continue running. I hope that you will like the new designs and that you consider to purchase them to please yourself, your close relative or close friend with a nice new apparel…
See the history and images of the French Foreign Legion’s only Demi-brigade (Half-brigade), 13e DBLE. This famous, well-known unit of the Legion was established in 1940 in Algeria, to participate in the WWII. Later that year, it became the first ever unit of the Free French Forces (FFL) of general de Gaulle. In 2011, as the last unit of the Legion, the Demi-brigade left Africa.
