I served with Victor Ferreira, he went on to be a "fut-fut" the same as I did. His brother was a Sgt in the same company. The two of them were both crossmen. Victor went on to do his sports instructor course.
So did i... I have some pics of him from 91/92. He wrote a book, with photos, about legionnaires and their tatoos... Wonder what or who inspired him. Couldn't run faster or better than me, btw. He later on, went on to REP. Our CDU was captain Toulain, an-ex chef de section in REP (Milan in the C.E.A.). Resigned his commission and went on to work for Cartier as a security consultant (blame the GABON tour for that).
A couple of others from REP that owed me their careers and also from the S.A.C., C.E.A. REP... Tupai (Tahitien), now deceased since 2013 approx (silly accident while fishing). Berry Andrew... a total tosser, who happened to be English. He was a medic too... aye right.. Fanny baws was an alcoholic with a sever case of thé shakes...
Jeeze, when going for a prise de sang done by him... Gave me a total aversion for English medics from the REP.
Post Shitum : no offense Joe, just simple silly complexes a dude may acquire whilst serving. Kev Allen (uncle Arthur) and myself knobbed his bourgeoise I wrecked his car, a Peugeot 309 and stole / loaned the other... a Porsche thingy! Nowhere as hot as mine (Toyota Celica ST from 78)
Rob Mason came to us later on... We talk every other day. Small world Indeed.
