French Foreign Legion

#1
I've read some of the previous topics.

Anyone got any info on joining the FFL, I've checked out the website, but wondered if anyone had any practical advice or tips.

I'mheading down in January, so any preparation advice would be greatly received.

Cheers

Stand your ground with the Corporal. Don't sing any of their stupid French songs, and if he objects to your demand for a single room, tell the Adjutant immediatement.

Don't forget to pack your duvet.

I have worked with them on a few exercises, they are shit, people running of and also a common reason for people joining up is to get visa- ship they get alot of people from south america who have no real interest in soldering, they have a high theft rate so you will have to keep your wits about mate

Really ? you've been on a few exercises with them, should make you an expert then yawn :roll: Visa's /Nationality was knocked on the about 10 years ago ( you're a little out date eh :D ).

The majority are now from the Eastern European states , South America a few but not a great deal, and 10 years ago the British speaker was in the majority, times change and the nationalities change.

High theft rate again b0ll0x no more no less than any other army

I've served in the British Army and the FFL, both good in different ways( but unless you've served in both, any comment in invalid ).

I see your new to the site , are you just trying to get your numbers up or are you genuinely a n0b ?

P.S. bootneck01 assume you're a RM , did'nt your lot surrender to an Iranian dinghy, end up playing chess with the captors and admitting being in the area, and generally act like cadets.....good IA drills surrender immediatley :roll:
