PACHE, a soldier in the 106th regiment of the line, in the squad of
Corporal Jean Macquart. He brought from his native village strong
religious principles, and was in the regular habit of saying his prayers
outside his tent. The example of his companions, however, made him a
bad soldier, and during the battle of 1st September, 1870, he left the
ranks, and took refuge in a tavern. After the capitulation of Sedan, he
was imprisoned along with his regiment on the promontory of Iges. Moved
by famine, he concealed some bread from his companions; but having been
denounced by Chouteau, he refused to share the spoil, and was murdered
by Lapoulle, who stabbed him with a knife. La Debacle.
