Ah, the good old days! When every criminal in Europe had already done mandatory service, and the prisons made the Legion look like a viable alternative.

Thank you, Tango!

Is it odd that I am more fascinated by the advertisings in the article than by the article itself?

Viva' le' Legion' !!!!! One of my favorite units to study. And I'm sure basileus knows Spain had/has their own version of the FFL based generally on the FFL. IIRC they are still around.

And their Cdr in it's early days was nick named something like the "Great Mutilated One", with a missing arm and one eye from combat. The SFL is an interesting unit in it's own right.
