Hi Raider22 and welcome to forum.

What you mean by “You scrath my back,ill scratch yours”? I mean, I know what expression means, but why did you use in this intro? If someone answer your question (which we will do without expecting return favor) how would you scratch our back ?

Hi Raider and welcome to the forum
I'd have taken it for granted that those who come on here are 1, looking to contribute in some way, and 2 that if they seek help that they will help in their own way, Sadly that isn't the case.
How many people have turned up with the correct number number of Tshirts (N'est pas Dusa?) or had numerous questions answered - numerous times :rolleyes: - and then forgotten all about us?

Hello Joseph thats just part of it i guess... They say never have high expectations so you are never disappointed by the negative outcome.
On the other hand i will try and support the forum as much as i can.

Oh yeah. Certainly most important thing in legion. Unwritten rule. Should be part of code of honor. Instant disclaimer if you don't obey!
3 T- shorts. Bring 2 or bring 4 and you can forget about your legion journey. :) How many potentially good legionnaires ruined their chances because of that. ;(

To be honest Dusa, I don't know of anyone who has been turned away because they haven't got the correct number of T shirts. But then again, that is not our job, our job is to prepare the candidates to be at their best, with the correct stuff.

And look smart in whatever rig- clean with decent hair cut.

Well that was it with my day in 1956 with H.M. Royal Marines.

I am sure it still applies.

The Legion has always and am sure they still do today, accept the odd vagabond or two

I agree with you on the vagabond part, but unless that is your circumstances than I would take Chas' advice.
