Scope and content

Maj. Joseph C. Edwards at the gates of the French Foreign Legion in Sidi Bel Abbes, Algeria. Near Oran, Sidi Bel Abbes was the headquarters of the French Foreign Legion until 1962. The French Foreign Legion was created by Louis Philippe in 1831 and is composed entirely of volunteers of any nationality willing to serve France. Legionnaires reputedly join seeking adventure or to escape their pasts - volunteers are allowed to enlist under an assumed name. After three years of service, a legionnaire can ask for French nationality and may also be entitled to a French resident permit if he has obtained a certificate of satisfactory military service.
