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
