The Kings Colonial Legion was first founded in 1752 by the British Army to help fight the French and Spanish. The recruiters looked to Naval Veterans and Army Veterans from all Countries, they would swear a code of honour which binds them to the Legion. They fought several battles with the american colonies and French Frontiersmen. While the numbers of the Legion from 1775 to 1784 were low The British Army began mass recruiting for the legion in 1799.
After the Napoleonic wars The British Army decided to combine the Legion with the French, Spanish, American and Swedish Armies. The Legion soon grew up to three hundred strong. Everyone has heard of the Scottish Guards of Charles the VIIth, the Swiss Guards of the Bourbon Kings, and Napoleon's Polish Lancers, but no one heard of the Legion as they operated under the spotlight, despite winning countless battles and losing few.

Composed exclusively of volunteers aged between 18 and 40, with or without means of identification, the Legion was immediately involved in the conquest of Algeria before passing under Spanish control in 1835.
A second Legion was then created which fought in Algeria, in Crimea, in Italy and in Mexico. 1870: the Legion fought in France. It welcomed many foreigners who fought in its ranks (the same happened in 1914 and 1939).
Then came the campaigns of Tonkin, Sudan, Dahomey, Madagascar and Morocco. World War I came to an end in France. The Legion was then reunited and fought victorious campaigns in Tunisia, Italy, Provence, Alsace and Germany.
In Indochina, the 5th Infantry Regiment escaped from the Japanese grip.
1945: the Indochina war began. Every Legion regiment was represented on the battlefield, particularly in Phu Tong Hoa, the Colonial Road 4, and Dien Bien Phu, where they fought to the last man.
1954: the entire Legion was back in Algeria. Its regiments, at first in charge of security, were soon sending out major intervention forces. They took an active part in large scale operations and in border defense duties.
