Really? I have never heard of that.
Maybe it is the new Legion ;-)
But I don't say it didn't happen because a lot of stuff depends on who is in charge of you and in what mood is he.
Indeed. However this would completely contradict the standing Legion regulations, and with my modest experience, I find that unlikely.
Unless of course, the regulations on the "l'anonymat" has changed, but I have no informations that confirms this.
As far as I know obligatory anonymity returnd in 10/2014. Before that for some years you would need a damn good reason to give them a request to change your name.
Maybe that is the reason he had that option and we didn't...
Actually whatever the texts would be saying, it would be extremely counterproductive for the Legion to invite all the new recruits/legionnaires to write home and inform next of kind.
The Legion would be overrun by requests from the whole world.
OK we accept them when they come, but I cannot imagine anybody encouraging them.
Well, actually there is.
Those who passed in rouge and stayed for over one week for some reason, usually medical. I know one Italian who was 2 weeks already when I came and he stayed for another two weeks after I left. 6 weeks in total, 5 of which in rouge.
And this wasn't even strange. Normally every week would be 7-10 people who were "retarded" in this way.
