  4. The informative and respectful tone adopted by Neil Teedie, Daily Telegraph, suggests that he is a man who has served in the armed services. Honest.

  6. What a pointless shower of sh1t...
  7. What a crap article!
  8. 2 REP is suposedly full of Brits who want out as the are doing FA, 2 REI full of Brazilians. Mate of mine just came back from failing selleection but he was 38 and suposewdly it was his eyesight that let him down.
  9. He left out the word 'convicted', so there's still a chance for some.
  10. haha awesome bit of writing, obv served
    "New recruits get about £1,000 a month and a shiny new rifle, which they are supposed never to leave on the battlefield. One practice popular in the main French army at certain times – surrendering – is not encouraged in the Legion"

    I still canot understand why the Legion is considered "elite" thogh.
  11. I suppose it's because they are elite when compared to their peers in the French Army. Mind you when I went to visit our kid at Aubagne (He was in for 18 years, just got out recently as a Caporal Chef) it just seemed like any other infantry outfit but with different traditions.
  12. I was in the legion the other night, shitfaced!!!!
  13. Oh my sh*t, am i stoned?
    or can i get away with disoning mon famillie?
    t'is too good mon
  14. In all honesty, it doesn't look like a bad life, living in Corsica chatting up tourists with your silly hat on.

    The money is sh1t though, and you might have to die for France.

    Always made me laugh that 2 REP's SF unit is called CRAP.
