Le suisse de la Garde pontificale de la cathédrale du Mans en 1932
I have just received the picture of a portrait of a man belonging to the Swiss Pontifical Guard of the Saint Julien Cathedral in Le Mans. It was painted by my grandfather with oil in 1932. The owner would like to know who this Swiss man was and he is searching in the archives. I remember seeing a Swiss man in Le Mans Cathedral when I was a child during the 50’s, but, by that time, everything seemed natural to me and I did not ask questions. The Swiss man opened the march during the ceremonies.
