Legion’s youngest Saharan motorized company

An almost unknown unit of the French Foreign Legion. An independent, autonomous motorized infantry company formed in 1955 to serve in Algeria during the Algerian War. A few months later, it became the 4th Legion Saharan Motorized Company (4e CSPL). The youngest of the four legendary Saharan motorized companies of the Foreign Legion.

Just as the other Saharan motorized companies, 4e CSPL was equipped with Dodges WC 4×4 and 6×6, with AM-M8 Greyhound armored cars and Berliet GBC trucks.
