Rural Policeman - Garde champêtre - Gardi
The village policeman announces the news (a town crier) and keeps the people informed of the laws of the land. He is a village authority as a representative of the law. He knows the village well, having been born there. He is known to all, important to all - everyone wants to be on good terms with him. He wears a distinctive two-cornered hat, a broad leather belt (a "baudrier"), with his drum slung across his shoulder.
