Man with a lantern - Night Watchman - Homme a la lanterne - Roustido 

He is late to hear the shepherds call.  One of the few remaining in the village in the middle of the night, he uses his lantern to go to Margarido and Mr. Jourdan in order to rouse them. Once at the stable he greets the Holy Family with a doff of his cap.
