A couple of questions and I need definitive answers please.
1 on enlistment is anonymity compulsory or by choice?
2 can a legionare keep his anonymous name and take citizenship on discharge or does he have to be rectified.
3 can a legionare change his name on discharge to the name he was given and apply for a name change by deed poll and obtain french citizenship
Thanks in advance.

Thanks for the links. Much appreciated the definitive answer depends on the when you joined havnt finished reading them all but thanks again.
As an aside the support and involvement shown by the members of cervens.net in my questions puts many other forums to shame. Thanks to all.

Unless... Unless he should get French nationality 'par le sang versé'. I haven't got time now, as I have to go out and eat with Erika, and I do like to back up what I say with proof (unless someone beats me to it), but if I remember I'll explain it to you later.

In that case you know all about it.
But did you know the following :
"No money, no medals, just to be French!" This is how the story began. It was 1993 and Marius Nowakowsky, a parachute legionnaire of Polish origin, had just lost his left leg at Sarajevo airport. Mariusz was made French a short time later thanks to derogatory measures because, almost 20 years ago, no legal device allowed one to become “French by pouring blood” except the naturalization procedure applied to any foreigner who requested it. In 1999, a specific law was passed in Parliament. From now on, legionaries wounded in combat will be able to receive recognition from the Nation.

I'm going to actually include that in one of my videos about legion traditions precedented or followed by Pascal Bonetti's poem circa 1920 with it's translation into English
