Were you allowed down town to mix it with the locals mate? You know wine women and songs! Or was it a quick day of sight seeing then back on the plane?
We had a day off, staying at the Italian Para barracks in Pisa. We were in Italy for a week.

Of passing interest I joined the RM today 63 years ago.

In my time in 1959 the RMs' carried out numerous exercises with the Reparto Sabotatori Paracadutisti in the Med.

In all events this will probably be my last post. No harps please.

When I get around to it I will send the final chapters of Kolwezi to you and Joseph. Plus couple photos. Private pm though.

You will be sorely missed my friend but understand. There’s only couple lads here that I can relate to. Probably the only reason I hang around. Be well Charles.

Chas has wrote that a few times since I've been on here. End of the day, up to him. He should realise there are younger people on here too who like to have fun & maybe discuss other things. Maybe Chas does not feel he gets enough praise 😁? It's like the Gym thread he was on there, putting his grumpy opinion so much so I said “just don't read it, others do post there”.

Chas leaving..? No way ol' timer. You’ve got a few more miles left in your tank. Don’t make me come to the UK and give you a verbal spray in person. Cervens is still the best Legion forum going compared to the rest.

We need more Anciens on the forum, alas there is a serious shortage. Currently serving would be brilliant, unfortunately the last active currently serving legionnaire we had was a disgrace to all who have served and himself. I have tried to reach out to a few mates I know, currently serving, and most feel that wannabes don't want to listen to their advice and have too many dreaming pre-conceptions. On top of that we've had guys come through and get in, then forget about the Forum completely as it no longer benefits them.

I started off as a wannabe on Cervens, alas my life has taken a different direction thanks to the guidance of Chas.

He is a very interesting gentlemen with an incredible story to tell. I have a feeling he won't leave us all together on Cervens but rather keep an eye on us from afar.

Not very clever but not surprised in the above! Chas has been round the block enough not to really be looking for praise that’s more a gym bunny thing happy Easter 🐣

These 3 medals arrived today. I can get them mounted and framed with the other 2. Many thanks to my old partner in crime Kiwi Ray Trembath
