Wonderful!

I read in a book about the General that the song was originally going to use another General's name (Canrobert?), but the guy who sang it (can't remember his name) thought Boulanger sounded better.

"Ma tendre épouse bat des mains

 Quand défilent les saint-cyriens

 Ma bell'-mèr' pouss' des cris

 En r'luquant les spahis

 Moi j'fiaisais qu'admirer

 Notr' brav' général Boulanger"

Thanks for all; I don't know many things about Canrobert, he haven't a politic part contrary to Boulanger who were one of the populist leaders in 1880's. I don't found other pictures of the spahi.

 This town were build with the houses of 6-7 playmofriends for an exhibition for "telethon" (french event for medical research) in Beaulieu (Isère departement). You can see all th pictures of the 8 dioramas in french site: "planet playmo"
