Every man knows that the difficult moments he was confronted with during his life and managed them, they will transform later into great memories. The difficulties and the fun are the essences which the man needs to live a good life. The French Foreign Legion, and the army in general, provides men with both a little bit of difficulties and a little bit of fun…
While the year of 2014 was marked by reorganization of the French Army with reducing its personnel and several unit dissolutions, including combat units within the Foreign Legion (e.g. 5th Squadron of 1er REC, 5th Company of 2e REI), the current year of 2015 is significant by reverse policy actions – increasing personnel serving in the French Army and (re-)creating the new combat units.
See the official list of movements of the French Foreign Legion forces and their logistical support infrastructure outside of France, within operational areas around the world, in October 2015.
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…
The French Foreign Legion is always involved in operations outside of France, throughout the world. See the official list of its temporary deployments of June/July 2015.
