The rugby team i play for has quite a few ex and currently serving army lads.
I am looking to join the armed forces in the next year once i finish my studies at FE College.
One of the lads is ex foreign legion.. a deserter i reckon ( he says he got chucked out for bad french) and another one of the lads dads has been in the FFL for about 10 years.
Thing i want to know is what is pay like in the Foreign legion... ex legion guy reckons that i should join the FFL as he says they were making approx 3000 euros a month.
Now i did a bit of digging on the Foreign Legion website and couldnt seem to find anything that mentioned being paid anything near this amount of cash. But i could be very very wrong.
The reason i am enquiring is that i am actually at the moment half considering it, especially considering the British Army boys are reccomending the FFL over the British Army.
So can someone clear up the pay rumour?
