    French Foreign Legion Citation lanyard - Fourragère

    Hi Guys ,thought you might like to see this Fourragère,which has been worn from 1954 to the present day by 2nd Foreign Parachute Battalion ( 2e BEP), and the 2nd Foreign Parachute Regiment (2e REP.)

    The striped "Olive" on the end of the Fourragère features the colours of the Croix de Guerre,which was awarded for the fourth and sixth citations in Dien Bien Phu in 1954 I believe,please free to correct me if I have got this wrong.
