Cadets Marches into Dordrecht
One of the main characters of the book, Major John Cenney, has arrived in The Netherlands for the book launch and the opening of the exhibition. During the setup of the "Cadets" exhibition in the National Education Museum in the Dutch town of Dordrecht he applied his knowledge of how to correctly wear the uniform to dressing a mannequin. The uniform is modeled after that of another principal character in the book, cadet Riley Sabol, who also donated her iconic high laced shoes as a prop for the display.
Maarten, volunteer at the museum, was the one responsible for the meticulous way the photos were attached to the walls of the 18th century exhibition room. The show will open Thursday April 2.
