I voted "Yes with a small ceremony". Day off, definitely.

However the question is, should the legionnaires be allowed out on town for a p*ss up? :whistle:
Not for a p#s up of course :eek:, but as usual visiting churches, museums and libraries....:geek:
like all soldiers do on leave/day off.:devilish:

What I find hard to understand is, there has been 221 views and 12 votes. Come on guys, it's not as though you are having to go down to your local polling station while match of the day is on.
If anyone doesn't know how to vote :rolleyes:. At the top of the thread page you have "cast a vote".
I can hardly see myself turning up at the COMLE and asking the COMLE for a day off because 12 people, well 11 (not counting the 'not interested' voted for it.☕

It certainly does look like a fraise des bois.

Yes now I am no longer their or in! As with any celebration within the Legion the special K and wine is on mass in my case i normally ended up in trouble, but I do think not to celebrate the creation is wrong.

"Wild Strawberrys"? Gotta have something to do with the color of their Berets, then.
Funny how so many Airborne/Para units around the world rock berry-colored beanies. Reckon who did it first?


Edit: Turns out it was the Brits, in '42, who came up with the idea.
