Water course in the 1er REG

A few images of a water course (Stage nautique) in the 1st Foreign Engineer Regiment (1er REG) of the French Foreign Legion. The 1er REG is specialized as the regiment engineer-amphibian. Because of its specialization, all new legionnaires arriving to the regiment have to pass the water course.

The 1er REG has also its own platoon of elite combat divers, they used to be called DINOPS. Since 2006, they have been PCG (Plongeurs de combat du génie / Engineer Combat Divers).
