Foreign Legion: 2018 Armistice Day

On November 11, 2018, Foreign Legion units commemorated the 100th Armistice Day marking the end of hostilities of World War I. They also remembered the 36,000 legionnaires and foreign volunteers being killed or wounded during the war. It’s not so surprising that in France between 1914-18, the RMLE (Foreign Legion Regimental Combat Team, now 3e REI) became the most decorated unit of the then French Army.

See the photos of legionnaires commemorating 2018 Armistice Day (also Remembrance Day) in Aubagne (1er RE), Castelanaudary (4e RE), Paris (GRLE), Montpellier (2e REI), Calvi (2e REP), Rodez (13e DBLE), Kourou (3e REI), Dzaoudzi (DLEM), Marseille (1er REC) + a photo of the War Memorial in Laudun, the garrison of 1er REG.
