Has anyone had any experience working with the French Foreign Legion? It came up in a recent conversation that their personal drills and skills were not so hot. Is this the case? Are they the same as the rest of the french armed forces or considered elite troops, looking at their deployments, they seem to be kept well away from the French people! Just interested, not looking to join up and forget, al a Beau Geste! Top book and movie by the way.
