The Band of The French Foreign Legion
The French Foreign Legion is an elite military corps whose training focuses not only on military skills but also on its strong ‘esprit de corps’, This highly sought after display, which has not been seen in this country for many years, consists of haunting singing, slow marching and stirring music which will leave a lasting impression on those who see it.
