There are eight days we could as recording the recent death of Briqueville and Pajol. But in announcing the double loss that the country had made, we said we would, we also pay tribute to two old soldiers whose coffins met in this very moment, and their comrades, glorious and mutilated remains of a heroic time, and a new generation proving that its appearance can prove himself worthy of his fathers, if France had to rely on his courage. It is as a tribute, in fact, that we have about these illustrious dead, mention their names, listing their actions, their praises enough.

Pajol was born February 3, 1772, in Besançon. His family belonged to the dress and it was distinguished and he himself was his right when the revolution broke 89. His vocation was stronger than paternal leadership: he entered the service as a volunteer in eighteen years, and was appointed lieutenant in the regiment of Saintonge in 1791. A year later, September 30, 1792, he joined the first in Speyer, where he was severely wounded in the left hand. Nevertheless he walks Worms order of Custine share Ebersheim on the night of October 13, with hundred foot, along the mountains, seizes Neustadt, of Turkeim and Alsey, and arrives at Mainz before the cavalry . This site surrendered 21 and continues his march to Frankfurt, where he still enters the first. Then detached with the body of General Informer on Limburg, he contributed with his little troop won the overall success of the Prussians November 8, 1792. 6 January following the Battle of Hochheim, Pajol behaved so brilliantly that Custine tied to his staff way. On 8 April, a night out, he seized, although wounded by a musket ball, the redoubt Biebrich. In 1794, appointed aide Kléber, under which it will develop in the art of war, he distinguished himself at the Battle of Marchienne (June 18), to that of Fleurus, battle of Mont-Patisel, decision of Iron Mountain, Battle of Esneux, that of the Roer. In all these cases, especially at the headquarters of Maaestricht entrusted to Kléber, Captain Pajol gave as evidence of value, he received one of these missions lavished little at this time, that of going to the National Convention to present a van enemy flags. Kleber tied as aide.

We should include all cases where the armies of Kléber, of Hoche, Jourdan, were one after the other involved if we wanted to follow Pajot, who made successively party in all its brilliant actions . The passage of Lahn, struck by a bullet in the stomach, he continued on until his horse fell dead: only then he was forced to be healed. A Altenkirken 'charging with Colonel Richepanse the enemy rearguard, it takes twenty guns and made four thousand prisoners. Richepanse Pajol Major General and password. Frankfurt before and Ostrach, horses killed under him. A Liettingen, he rushes in the first ranks of the enemy's cavalry, is chopped swords, and about to be taken, jump on a horse apart and joined the Sixth Hussars.

This regiment was sent to Switzerland to join the army of Massena. A Wintherthourn, he still had enemies tumble squads executed by a load with a drive that illustrates the general chief admired when Pajol horse was killed and he finds himself alone and surrounded by enemies. His regiment retraces his steps, delivers. Pajol rides a horse taken, resumed command, and returns with his hussars to a brave new carnage and a large number of prisoners. Massena appointed him colonel.

We see then go and stand out in the Italian army and the army of the Rhine; deserve a sword of honor at the Battle of Neuburg, be called to the expedition to England, and leave soon for the Austrian campaign.

A Ulm, Leoben, at Austerlitz, he covered himself with glory: Napoleon, after this last battle, the General appointed Brigadier, he campaigns Prussia and Poland, his name is connected with all major remontres: Friedland Peissing, Regensburg, where he took two thousand prisoners: Kekmuhl, where he had two horses killed, Vienna Lobau, Essling, Nesselbach, Wagram.

In the countryside and in the retreat from Russia, it is everywhere. On 9 September Mojaisk he right arm broken by a bullet, and his horse was killed. There are nonetheless pursued the enemy to Moscow, where he entered first.

Services he rendered to that time, although still glorious but fatal, our military history, are without number. Napoleon did not hesitate to say to all his staff that "he had no cavalry general that Pajol, that one knew not only good fight, but do not sleep, keep well, and n be not surprised. "In front of Leipsic,
