He's Legit all right. We came across each other in Castel, (not sure if I didn't do his basic) We also came across each other in 3 REI I was there Feb 86-88. Then again in the REP. He's wearing a CCS sweatshirt but I always knew him being in the 1 st Cie. I believe he's German.
They are very good videos for wannabes by a guy who really served. Too many guys who quit or deserted are making videos. Good to get the perspective of a guy who has really been there and done that in video format. He seems pretty cool.
jwaltos, yes we were in the same company in Castel. You must have had one of the fut-fut who did instruction with me join your section. Either Cliff Ross or Malcolm McDaonald. I remember that you had a fut-fut (from another section) called Mendez, a Spaniard.
If it was Ross then he was the one S/C Mari would call ‘Ipswich’. The only thing I remember about a fut-fut Spaniard was that one was stabbed in the back and I can't recall if it was in the same company. I don't have very many photos left as many of them were destroyed over time but I do have a few group photos. For example, if you were in Guyane under Piquemal were you involved in any of the competitions involving the paramilitary there (pompiers, gendarmes...)? I was on the swim team and am dead centre at the back in a large group photo. Out of curiosity, do you remember a Frenchman by the name of Maillet in Castel who was in the ‘regular’ as a para? He was something of a prima donna and it was fitting that he was one of the official faces of the Legion when he was on the Legion website several years ago promoting something... He had about 18 years service at that time.
Wow guys. It's amazing that after all this years on forum you figured out that you met each other. Please don't get me wrong. It's great thing. It would even better if you to have group picture together.
