Les Irlandais et La France-300 years of Military co-operation at Les Invalides Paris.

Discussion in 'Ireland (ie. Irish Defence Force)' started by kerryman, Apr 10, 2012.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. In view of the increased emphasis on Anglo-French military co-operation any of you who who are in Paris on business or pleasure this month might be interested in a visit to the French National Army Museum at Les Invalides where there is an exposition on Irish-French military co-operation over the past 300 years. It very diplomatically covers battles such as Fontenoy as well as the Irish contribution with the British Army in the Great War.

    I took some photos there last week and I have made this little compilation below. Hope you enjoy!

    I have also included two of my favourite marches

    San Patricio- the March of the Armada Argentina in honour of its founder- Admiral William Brown from county Mayo.

    Le Chant des Partisans - THE great song of the French Resistance.

    About 9 minutes-I hope you enjoy it. (The exposition finishes at the end of the month).

  8. I can't remember the perfect quote from the WW2 German spy... the Irish are very good at dying for their country, just not very good at fighting for it.
