13e DBLE: Physical training with Major Gérald

In his new video published by the official French Foreign Legion channel on YouTube, Major Gérald visited the famous 13th Foreign Legion Half Brigade (13e DBLE) at their Camp Larzac. His task was to help increase the physical fitness and agility of the legionnaires, for developing their operational readiness.

At the 13e DBLE’s camp, Major Gérald – the head of the Sports Office of the 1st Foreign Regiment (1er RE) – met with Adjudant Laszlo (note that these are only first names, due to the current French military security directives), the head of the 13e DBLE Sports Office. Selected legionnaires coming from the regiment companies served as the core of the future instructors; they will spread within their respective units the new or advanced techniques they have learned.

At the end of the training, a challenge took place under the surveillance of the commanding officer, Lieutenant Colonel Aubry, who served as the head of the GCP commandos with the 2e REP in the mid-2000s.
