Something different today. Posted below are some very vintage music files featuring…..the French Foreign Legion. One is well known–Edith Piaf’s Mon Légionnaire. The others popped up on various new groups servers. Also posted are the lyrics to Mon Légionnaire and the Le Fanion De La Legion.
Wikipedia notes that: “both songs were written by Raymond Asso who was a veteran of the Foreign Legion. Mon Légionnaire appears in most records of Piaf’s songs. The romantic theme of a woman’s longing for an embittered Legionnaire with whom she had a brief affair and who refused to tell her his name fits well with Piaf’s image”.
