Now the French really know how to turn on a parade.
Note the particularly slow marching pace of the Foreign Legionnaires. In comparison to the 116-step-per-minute pace of other French units, the Foreign Legion has an 88-step-per-minute marching speed. It is also referred to by Legionnaires as the “crawl“. Because of the impressively slow pace, the Foreign Legion is always the last unit marching in any parade.
