Christian Den Fjerdes Laug


This time the students from the military police course came from the following countries:

Norway, Sweden, Finland, Great Britain, Poland, Germany,  Latvia and Denmark.IMG 1172

In his welcome speech, the Chief Bencher mentioned, that normally there would be participants from Ukraine. We miss them and hope they soon will participate again. We wish them all the best for the future.

The Chief Bencher asked major Kristian Henningsen to bring our wishes to his colleges in Ukraine.

The initiation went along fine. Everybody was in a good mood, and the sausages, beer and snaps went down, apparently with pleasure.

Also, the trip around the Stonehouse, watering the tree, on a sunny day, was perfect.

Our three-man Band ended the initiation with a little concert.
