The Foreign Legion on the March

Google used to feature a News Archive search but for the last year or so it seems to have been off-line.  One could search many different newspapers from the late 1800’s until the present.  Today I discovered that it might be back up in a limited way and I was able to find several old news articles about my favorite search string:  “Foreign Legion”.  The article below is a one page spread that appeared on page 26 of the 27 January 1935 (Sunday) issue of the Milwaukee Journal.  It was written by Richard Halliburton who was a well known adventurer and travel writer at the time.  He would be lost at sea four years later attempting to sail from Hong Kong to San Francisco in a Chinese junk.  This article is an example of the way he merged his travels with his sense of adventure and his writing.  PDF is below.
