3Cie REP (29 years apart). My photo...February 1993 on the border of Somalia and Ethiopian. The last Transall 160 back to Djibouti. Present day...boarding a Airbus A400 Atlas for a jump Calvi 2021. Don't fool yourself. Missions D'Assistance Exterieure is what you want...

I was there ten years later..a very basic parachute training centre for the REP. Now as I see it on google a swimming pool and all kinds of clubs! Much has changed!! Good to see some of us are still around! Cheers mate!

I Mark, I take it that you would have gone to the old outdoor swimming pool that was filled with sea water in the day. I forget the name of the village it was in, it may even have depended on the commune of Lumio.
