Ask the Mountie

why am i feeling this way?

Dear Mountie,

why am i feeling this way?


Dear Ronnie

What you’re feeling is normal, it is not unusual for those who just joined the French Foreign Legion to be a little bit confused and anxious, especially when it comes to making the bed in the morning.

In the Legion the bed is stripped every day and the blankets folded to an exact size and placed one on top of another. These are placed at the end of the bed with the Couverture underneath. The sheets are folded and rolled in an exact manner to form a tube. These are then laid diagonally across each other on top of the blankets in a cross shape.

My best advice is to get used to it - this routine does not stop for as long as you reside on a Legion Quartier - regardless of rank.
