Yes, this forum has been reformatted, that is probably why the links do not work any more.Hello Volt,
Our member Sarahlouise had a photograph of two men posing in uniforms - on the back of that photo it said "Legion en orient" (without the word "etrangere"). I found the post but when clicked on the attachment - "page not found".
There is no mention of the Armenian Legion in any of the books I have read about the Foreign Legion, so I don't know where the connection is, besides that they where foreigners, so therefore a legion of foreigners, a foreign legion...Hello Peter,
It probably is , and I'll do a bit more reading about it. The first sentence in the link you provided is kind of confusing:
"The Armenian Legion (French: Légion arménienne) was a foreign legion unit within the French Army...."
What triggered my memory was the title of the article in french (on Volt's link) :
" La version française de cet article: Légion étrangère en Orient : 1915-1919 ".
