I left my love a letter in the hollar of a tree.
I told her she would find me in the U.S. Cavalry.
High, yo, down they go, there's no such word as can't.
We'll ride clean down to hell and back for Ulysses Simpson Grant.

One of the most feat of arms of our foreign legion, a situation which shows, the heroism and the value of the men (French or not, I know other situations) when they think of fighting for a good reason.

Hello, cooster67 ...

I really like what you did with the kepis! What material did you use for the "havelocks" (neck coverings)? It really works very well and looks great!

Thanks for sharing and all the best,
Richard

Hello Richard,

For the kepis in white they are painted with the bomb of painting and for the handkerchiefs postpone it acts quite simply of pieces of paper hanky  :D

Your army seems to be getting bigger!

I love the last foto! They really look like what I imagine the French Foreign Legion should look like in Mexico (or North Africa)!

Thanks for the fotos, cooster67.

All the best,
Richard
