Foreign Legion T-Shirts: 13e DBLE Insignia

Formed in February 1940 and then once again in July of the same year, the 13th Demi-Brigade of the Foreign Legion (13e DBLE) remains the only demi-brigade within the current French Army. During WWII in the Middle East, Africa and Europe, the unit gained various awards and decorations. The 13e DBLE continued in fighting for France and in receiving decorations in Indochina and Algeria between 1946-62.

From 1962 to June 2011, the 13e DBLE was stationed in Djibouti, Africa. Since July 1968, it was the last Foreign Legion unit permanently based on that continent. From August 2011 to June 2016, the half-brigade was placed at a desert training camp located at the Zayed Military City of the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

The Phalange magnifique (Awesome formation, its nickname) is one of the most exceptional unit currently serving under the French national flag. If you are interested in the 13e DBLE, its badge was digitalized and published online in our store, to support this web page. The design contains its nickname, Phalange magnifique and More Majorum, the unit’s motto meaning “In the manner of our ancestors”.
