Intended to make sure the Legionaires didn't have the finances to desert I think,  check out the payscale of the 18th century French Foreign Legion which has lots of parallels....


"And the four bare walls stand on the seashore. a wreck a skeleton a monument of that instability and vicissitude to which all things human are subject. Not a dwelling within sight, and the farm labourer, and curious traveller, are the only persons that ever visit the scene where once so many thousands were congregated." T.Lewin 1867
You’ll never get rich by digging a ditch, you’re in the army now...
