NCO from 2e REP before a tactical progression training in the Corsican mountains surrounding the compound. He is carrying the good old FAMAS but no optics and accessories are mounted for this exercise.

It was my first day with the Legionnaires in Calvi and they kinda tested me... The Adjudant and the Captain from the company I was going to follow looked at me and said "you look reasonably fit, you are wearing outdoor shoes, so you're coming with us for a little walk this afternoon"...
So I ended up sweating and spiting, running up and down the hills with my equipment, but I kept my mouth shut and after that, they invited me for a beer at the mess and were great hosts for the rest of the week ;-)
