This is a set of photos that were taken over a period of 6 years, from seventeen to twenty-three.

The first one is of me as a naive teenager joining the Marines and then the second when I came back from deployment to Hong Kong.

The next is when I joined the French Foreign Legion and then a slightly fitter looking me when I joined the 2eme Regiment Etranger de Parachutistes or as it is better known 2 REP.

Below is me as a Coporal in the REP on my last jump before I decided I’d had enough of playing soldiers and decided to go home.
