A Christmas video from the 2nd Foreign Parachute Regiment (2e REP) is added. It shows the legionnaires of the Reconnaissance section of the Reconnaissance and Support Company (Compagnie d’éclairage et d’appui, CEA) which celebrate their Noël at their base at Calvi, Corsica and also in Africa.
In the beginning of this autumn the 2e REP conducted two major exercises. Vent d’automne (Autumn wind), when the entire regiment deployed to Balagne (Corsica) for one week.
