Which battle does the French Foreign Legion celebrate each year?

battle of Yu Oc (Vietnam)
battle of Borodino (Russia)
battle of the Somme (France)
the battle of Camarón (Mexico)
On 30 April 1863 a small infantry patrol of French Foreign Legion, num­ber­ing 62 soldiers and three officers was attacked and besieged by a force that may have even­tu­al­ly reached 3,000 Mexican infantry and cavalry. They made a de­fen­sive stand at the nearby Hacienda Camarón, with a plan to occupy Mexican forces to prevent attacks against the nearby French supply convoy. Only two le­gion­naires sur­vived, but they stopped Mexicans for the whole day and reached their goal.
