TRAINING BEFORE D.DAY

From 9th to 12th of July, troops of the french foreign Légion are training in Satory, close to Versailles, for the national marching parade in Paris the 14th of July.

Traditionnaly the pionneers and the musicians of the foreign Legion participate each year to the marching parade in Paris on the famous Champs-Elysees avenue.

This year their comrades of the 2nd former regiment located in Nîmes closed to Marseille and commanded by colonel Hervé Fouilland will have the great honour to take part to the national military event.

For the legionnaires who come from all over the world and especially from 150 nations, this moment of glory is considered for them  like their effective adoption by the french nation.

Therefore all the "white kepis" do their best to march in a very perfect way in order to honor their  international reputation.
