Search for missing Legionnaires

I am trying to compile a list of missing Legionnaires and if possible their photos to help familys and friends try to find them. Also, Legionnaires who are looking for comrades can also be added to this page.

If you are looking for, or know of any missing Legionnaires please e-mail me as much information about them as possible. (Name/legion name, regiments served in, date joined/last heard from, photos, etc) Email me here and I will add them below.

You can also send me later updates or a picture for insertion.

If you have the army number/matricule and Legion name (name is not enough you have to have the army number) of the one you're looking for, you can write a letter to the following address inquiring about them.

Commandement de La Légion étrangère
Bureau des Anciens
Quartier Viénot RD 2
BP 21 355

If you think the Legionnaire you are looking for might have fallen in Indo China, you can write to the following address to see if his name is on the honour wall, or check this virtual wall of honor from the Ðiên Biên Phú web site

Real name: John/Johnnie Day

Legion name: ? Mat.: ?

Nationality :British left the RAF in about 1956/57br I am looking for anyone who might have known John/Johnnie Day in the last 1950s/early 60s (possibly 1957-1962) in Algeria or Djibouti.
He could have been known as Warr (or Wolf(f). His date of birth was 3rd December 1933 and he had served five years in the RAF, some of that time with Allied Air Forces Central Europe in Fontainebleau.
Whilst there he married a French girl, Lucette Canfin, but back in Britain Lucette left him. Unsuccessfully looking for her in Paris he became penniless and attempted to join the French Army but because of the time factor was sent on to the Legion HQ in Paris where he got a pass to Marseilles.
He had the advantage of being totally bilingual and had also completed a Russian course whilst in the RAF.
After the de Gaulle debacle his regiment returned to France. He is thought to have left the Legion with one Georges Dentressangle. Another known French colleague was Marius Chassang.
It is understood John later became a mercenary in the Congo, was wounded and spent some time in hospital in Belgium.

I have written to many over the years. The French Foreign Legion Headquarters deny they were ever in Norfolk, Virginia.
The group stayed at the Cinclant Fleet base in Norfolk, Virginia. They were in the U.S. x 7 days.
I respectfully request that you e-mail me with any help or direction you can provide.
Thank you.

am looking for my best friend and fellow paratrooper Mick Balfe (Michael Joseph Balfe). We joined the British Army in '83, served in Juniors together and later passed P Company together. It has been 15 years since. Mick left for the FFL in April '86, (Sorry Mick my knee was too rooted to go with you). I left the Paras 2 years later. The rest is a long story which I look forward to sharing with you over some beers. All the best to you Mick, Jim If anyone knows Mick or can help by passing this message on to him it would be much appreciated. Jim jholden@froggy.com.au .
