Poulet and most of 2REP were deployed outer mer (Sarajevo?) in May 1994. Colonel Tomatis (2nd in command) signed my certificate in his office a day before my departure to Aubagne. He shook my hand, we had a good chat.
He was CO in Sarajevo 92/93 when I was attached to them as a signal specialist. He told us that we had to behave like French, so salut senior NCO's and officers (in Holland you don't have to salute) and don't question anything otherwise we would be slapped around like they would do with one of their own. Good thing was we were allowed like the legionnaires to drink all day.
My old company commander. He didn’t really see eye to eye with the Brits. Can’t blame him really we were a troublesome lot! although after Kolwezi he did give the nod on me going on the corporals course. One of the fittest officers in the Legion I knew. Surprised he died so young.
