While visiting the Musée de l'Armée, my dad and I also watched a large French military ceremony in the central courtyard of Invalides. The French navy dress uniforms (with the red pom pom on top of the hat) are particularly awesome. The enlisted men and women standing at attention with FAMAS rifles with fixed bayonets would have to cover the pointy tip of the bayonet with their hand when they moved around, presumably to prevent poking someone's eye out.
