On our trip down the Canal du Midi, there was a strike of lock keepers. So we had a day walking around Castelnaudary. Right on top of the hill, in front of an old windmill, we came across this!

Earlier on in the morning, these boys marched past us on the canal, with full packs and guns. They probably were going at it all day, and this ceremony to end it all. What a long day for them, no wonder they look tired.

Very unusual sight. I wonder about the camera and mike that was filming them… any clues? Maybe for their own graduation?

A local tv crew we thought. They took it in turns standing in front of the pile of hats to have their photos taken. So we think they thought this was rather special too.
