Nice read, as always-- such attention to lineage, and interesting details (1939 burning of Joinville archives !)

In the meantime, reminded me of Ardéchois Coeur-fidèle

Thanks! For more info on the Compagnons you can check the page of Philippe Aguesse, he mentions Ardichois; which is not a great source of techniques but a fun outlook on the whole Compagnons culture!

From Gallica.fr, a picture of marine infantry (fusiliers marins) doing their méthode Hébert extensions:
