Musee de l'armee at Les Invalides

During our recent visit to Paris we visited Musee de l'armee at Les Invalides.  This was my 4th visit.

Here are just a few general shots from the visit.

Bronze cannons lying about.. careless?  :-)

A 'Napoleon'.

I'd never before realised that the stonework around these dormer windows was shaped as suits of armour.

The stonework is being cleaned and repaired.. looking great.

Napoleon's tomb... still impressive, even after 4 visits

A French 75 (the famous 'soixante quinze').
