I will ask my sons, that are in Cannes right now on summer holidays, to look up some local newspapers for photos and maybe some video and see if we can get them posted. I will call them tonight. So hang in there, but i can't promise you anything Asia_Y.

Is he going to stay 2 or 3 years in 3 REI : seems the rules have been changed and from now on you stay there three years, followed immediately by minimum 2 years in another regiment in mainland France

Martin: a regiment in mainland France cannot be the REP since they are on an island :p:p

Sorry, Martin interpreted my message correctly : I should have written "apparently now 3 years in Guyana immediately followed by 2 years in 'France Métropolitaine" (which includes Corsica)"

i know, was just pulling his chain :)

btw in la (vieux) Legion there was no room for interpertation but the spoken word was law
(which sometimes led to funny situations as the CCh who spoke bad french thought they were yanking his chain by doing something completely different as he wanted, or standing with a questionmark on their faces not knowing what to do, not realizing he used the wrong words

What change of which Discipline?

Maybe the discipline of going after female tourists in the summer and drinking beer on the beach every weekend

Coming from a wet jungle with spiders, anacondas etc the discipline of relaxing a bit after working hours and be in the normal world could be harsh
