After welcoming the 25 Cadets of the Indre Gendarmerie for a visit of the “la maison départementale de la mémoire militaire” premises, close order sessions and a study of La Marseillaise, “Les Amis de La Martinerie”, once again, partnered with "Les Cadets de la Gendarmerie" to provide logistical support for the Cadet orienteering initiation on Wednesday February 15.
If the technical part (initiation to the use of the compass, reading of the map, ...) was provided by Bruno V., Jean-Pierre was responsible for finding a partner for the snack - Thanks to the director and the assistant director of the Leclerc supermarket located on the Route de Tours in Saint-Maur for supplying all the ingredients.
Jean-Pierre and Martial settled in the forest of Le Poinçonnet to entertain the Cadets and were able to attend the garrison cap ceremony by the Colonel commanding the gendarmerie group, by his assistant, by the gendarmerie non-commissioned officers and by the members of the “Cadets de la Gendarmerie“ association present on the site.
A fine example of inter-association cooperation.
