Thanks for that great summary, Lyderik, but there was, of course, also the humourous side of it all: Which I kind of like 😀

26 mai 1942, Bir Hakeim, du nom d''un point d''eau désaffecté au milieu du désert de Libye. Seize jours durant, la première brigade française libre du général Koenig va résister aux attaques des armées italienne et allemande dirigées par le général Rommel. Milou, en première ligne de la bataille, participera à ce répit gagné pour les Britanniques, leur permettant de se replier puis de triompher à El Alamein.

Padre Lallemand (excuse the spelling)? I believe he did the jump with you men in '78.
That’s him. He was quite the character! He loved to have a laugh and a beer with the lads. He was just one of us. a couple weeks into the operation all of a sudden there he was visiting the company didn’t bother him there were rebels around. Shook our hands and stayed the night with us. Next morning took off with his escort to do the rounds with the rest of the regiment. At camp raffalli and at borgo doing a jump he would pick his place in the stick and nobody would argue! Bless you padre what a privilege it was knowing you!

Was in Tchad with him (twice)
(Dodgy caractère)
Wouldn'ttrust him as far as i could throw him
Lock up your sons
If thats the case its a shame someone didnt throw him out without a parachute, too many use religion as a cover for that type of crime.
