Proper M1914 French Foreign Legion Hat?

I’m not buying it, I wanted it as a reference.

I had a similar hat when I was 8 or 9 years old. It was a kids Captain Gallant hat with a metal pin . I think it was red and black…

I remember how many decades ago the joke was that people joined the French Foreign Legion to forget a girl. Probably not what ever happened in real life though. I assume most of the people who did so actually needed food and housing and could not get it elsewhere.
