The French Foreign Legion Engineering Corps in full marching order. Different to the regular French army whose Engineering Corps have an insignia common to other world armies of a flaming grenade, the Legion have two crossed axes.

Ceremonial dress is a blacksmith’s apron and weapon of choice –  an axe.
