The drop zone was missed by more than a fraction on this training jump by the French Foreign Legion. The urban terrain led to some uneasy landings for many of the members of 2e Rep.

2e Régiment Étranger de Parachutistes, 2e REP. The only airborne regiment of the French Foreign Legion. Created in Sétif in October 1948, it has been stationed at Camp Raffalli near the town of Calvi, Corsica, since it moved from Bou-Sfer, Algeria, in 1967. During its history, the 2e REP integrated men of the other two Legion airborne regiments—the 3e REP (in 1955) and 1er REP (in 1961).

Oeps, de DZ op een haartje na gemist…. 🙂 (2REP, French Foreign Legion)
