French Foreign Legion parachutists in cover along a jungle road in Indochina, 1950. They wear a mix of American M1942 reversible camouflage uniforms, French webbing and helmets, and are all armed with the MAS36/CR39 paratrooper’s carbine. The RTO carries a Luger P08 on his hip.   The radio op previously served in the 2nd Waffen-SS division in the same role, and like many former SS members sought anonymity in the Legion.
