A dive into our history
The Union of Injuries of the Face and Head
In the aftermath of the First World War, three men, Albert JUGON, Bienaimer JOURDAIN and Colonel PICOT, founded the association “L’Union des Blessés de la Face et de la Head »to help their comrades disfigured during the war. They are called “Les Gueules Cassées”, a harsh and provocative term for the general public and affectionate for them. They also adopt a motto, full of promise and hope,“Smile anyway”.
Even today, “Les Gueules Cassées” proudly carry values of fraternity and mutual aid, and provide moral and material assistance to the military, the police , to gendarmes and firefighters, wounded in combat and in service.
