    I know of a very good second hand shop.
  8. Don't want to be too technical, but Camerone is actually tomorrow...on the 30 th of April, not the 29th.

    Major (Ret) Roger Faulques, survivor of the RC-4 battle in Indochina in 1950, who took part in the Algier Coup of 1961, ex-mercenary in Yemen (with MI6) and Congo will carry the wooden hand of Capitaine Danjou.

    For more infos (in French) on the bearer of the wooden hand and the honour guard of veterans:

    Anyway, happy Camerone and I hope Miss Kepi Blanc will be good looking this year !
  9. Camerone seems to be quickly throwing his election lead away.

  12. Bravo, mon ami (sorry, there's no icon for a single hand clapping, so this will have to do :clap: )

    Sacred blue! Someone doing Legion recruitment on ARRSE? Who could it be?

    I'm stumped - so I'm keeping my hands off this one.

    Is there a decent book on the RC4 battle/disaster in English? (If memory serves me right, this was the retreat from Cao Bang ridge..?)
