Ah! «Louis’» knows about le 2 ème Blindé of Général le Clerc in World War II, too!
Sad that they would be needed, but I have to admire any of the brave men and women who put themselves on the front lines of trouble and danger.
So this is a "national" group...kind of like a French "Swat" team?Don't think I'd argue with that tank no matter what!And please fill your refrigerator...you can't work well on an empty stomach! ;-)
It's good to know they are there, if ever needed.
This reminds me, I've always wanted to ask this of someone who would know, but have never had the chance. When I was in Paris last summer, I took a picture of some policemen standing on the street. One of them saw me, and was VERY firm telling me no, and I had to erase the picture. Did I do a stupid tourist thing - are you not allowed to take pictures of police in France?Anyway, I'm blabbing. Your picture is interesting!!
At ready--hopefully never to be called to action again. MB
You and VP both have big guns today. I hope you're not fighting.
This is very interesting, I guess Satory is the place of Eurosatory? Be ready for mid June!I have never realized before that it was a suburb of Versailles...
Eurosatory, June 14-18 2010.
@ VP: merci, I didn't even know...
T. Becque a raison: tu fais des photos interdites!(mais bon, on ne te dénoncera pas..Ü)
French is such a beautiful language. Gendarmerie sounds so lyrical. :-)Sharon
Very fancy word for policemen. However, their department building could be just about anywhere.
Not my favorite subject lol but it's necessary though I would prefer to see these kind of heavy vehicles hidden from the public.
I think it would be unwise to attract the attention of the Gendarmerie officer driving the tank!
