Not FFL so don't get too excited…

14e régiment d'infanterie et de soutien logistique parachutiste was re-created a few days ago. Not really a “new“ regiment because it is to replace the régiment de soutien du combattant. But given that this unit wasn't airborne, one can say it’s a new para regiment.

Just a quick word on the garde drapeau . It is considered a great honour to be chosen as the regiment's garde or porte drapeau. The porte drapeau being the one who actually carries the regiment's colors. You can see a couple of pics Mark Wake as the REP's garde Drapeau in Calvi on the media page 3.


Also (forget which year, but it was when I was in the 3rd Cie REP) CCH Maillet on page 1, in the white debarder, was a garde drapeau REP on the 14th Juy in Paris.
