Losers, eh? Live in France

AKA "Cheese Eating Surrender Monkeys"

Invented the beret as we know it (See Royal Tank Regiment) but wear it pulled down on the wrong side.

Don't seem to have won a war lately, but I certainly wouldn't want to mess with them. Foreign Legion is mainly made up of Frenchmen claiming to be either natives of Switzerland or Belgium (See French Foreign Legion).

Recently standardised on one pattern of camouflage uniform, called CCE (Camouflage Centre Europe). Looks vaguely US.
