The R.E.P. has a new chef de corps, Lt-Col Christophe Tritscher.
2e REP Calvi... Every two years a new Chef de Corps takes command of the regiment. The previous CdC will be escorted down to the front gate... and depart.

That's a cool looking pistol, any idea what it is? Either way, it didn't get the same hype when it was changed over from the PA Mle 1950 (from our days) as the FAMAS got.

Joe, I’ve been told it’s a Beretta 92S (9mm).

It's also a cool looking étui (holster)
Joe, one of the lads told me they are changing to the Glock in the near future. Orders have already gone in. Colonel Tritscher came to the REP in 2003 (chef de section 4th company). Off to 3REI in ‘07 for two years. Then he returned to the REP to take command of 1st company.

On this day in 2013 Hélie de Saint-Marc passed away. I was privileged to meet Saint-Marc in Calvi at St. Michel 1993, with many other 1er REP Anciens while modifying the Salle d'Honneur (museum). He was offered clemency if he ratted on his fellow officers after the ‘Generals' Revolt’ of April 1961. He kept his mouth shut... Served his time. R.I.P...
