Did a recent visit Joseph..good stuff!I've been going on my channel now for a year last September. At first it was to help out job seekers like myself. I then put out a vdieo called "Job Offer: French foreign legionnaire". It is by far the worst video that I've put out. Ironically it is the most successful, topping over 9 700 vues. It is always in the top three of the last 48 hours views. (you can see it down on the bottom right). Equally ironically, the video that I thought would do the best "And through St Micheal...Long live the Paras" only got 50 something views, here is the description to it:
Welcome to the 6th episode of the Legion traditions. This time, we're going to look at the 2nd REP which will celebrate St. Michael's Day on September 29. More importantly, we'll look at where the date of this holiday comes from and why St. Michael? Who exactly is he, where is he in the hierarchy of angels.
Then we'll look at those pesky shirt creases, which are so annoying and hard to iron, especially on a new shirt,
Then we'll look at the green beret, why that particular color.
Did you know that it was the 13th DBLE who was the first to wear a beret? And that the "13" never wore the "Bonnet de Police" which was the official name of the Calot.
You will notice that these three subjects have a common point: Indochina.
I would like to wish everyone in the name of the Cervens: a French Foreign Legion forum: A Happy St. Michael! At the same time, I would like to thank all those of the forum who contributed to this video, especially "Kronenberg" & Le Petit Caporal (LPC).
I had even translated it into French with the same (lack of ) success on a different video.
Oh, well as the saying goes: you can lead a legionnaire to the foyer, but you can't make him drink. Or is it a horse to water? Whatever.
I would be interest in your color scheme, I'd given it a try, but without any success.
Here is where you can find my channel:
