Geocache Description:

An easy and nice 6 km pedestrian circuit across Orbais.

Devant l’église Saint-Lambert d’Orbais trône un impressionnant canon. Offert à Perwez par le Musée Royal de l’Armée en 2006, cette pièce historique commémore la participation des militaires belges au sein de l’armée britannique en 1944-1945, sous le commandement du major Jean-Baptiste Piron. Ces Belges apportèrent une contribution décisive à la campagne du Normandie puis à celle de Hollande à la fin de la Seconde Guerre Mondiale. Ce multicache rend honneur aux hommes courageux de la Brigade Piron qui ont combattu pour la libération de l’Europe et pour notre liberté. La plupart d’entre eux ont aujourd’hui disparu, mais leur souvenir est toujours présent et notre reconnaissance envers eux demeure immense. Une autre cache en mémoire de la Brigade Piron a été créée par Leonas à Rongy, à la frontière franco-belge.

Le parcours champêtre de 6 km et ses WP, complètement modifiés depuis le 09 juin 2013, est aisé et les énigmes d’observation sont assez faciles. Ce multicache s’adresse donc particulièrement aux familles et aux géocacheurs juniors. Il vous permettra de découvrir Orbais, l’un des plus beaux villages de l’entité de Perwez. Bonne promenade ! Plan disponible.

In front of the Saint-Lambert church of Orbais, you can admire an impressive gun. The Royal Army Museum offered this “Memory Gun” to Perwez in 2006, as a commemoration of the participation of Belgian soldiers in the British Army in 1944-1945. Major Jean-Baptiste Piron, the commander of this famous brigade, contributed with his troops to the success of the Normandie and Holland campaigns at the end of WWII. This multicache honors the courageous men of Brigade Piron who fought for the liberation of Europe and for our freedom. Most of them have disappeared, but we will never forget them and our gratitude towards them remains great. Leonas has created another cache in memory of La Brigade Piron in Rongy, at the French-Belgium border.

The picturesque 6 km itinerary and the associated waypoints have been fully redesigned on June 09, 2013. The observation clues are quite easy to be solved. This multicache is therefore addressed to families and to junior geocachers. You will discover Orbais, one of the most beautiful villages in Perwez. Enjoy your walk ! Map available.
