Samenvatting

On the basis of theoretical and empirical considerations the author concludes that values of chivalry, such as courtesy, politeness, etiquette, courage and honour are still relevant for the modern Cadets Corps. In particular rules of conduct, which find expression in etiquette, are the subject of investigation in this article. As a result of a far-reaching democratization of recruitment cadets come from all layers of society the cadets society cannot be called chivalrous anymore. Nevertheless, the values of chivalry are still cherished, as they are functional for the work of the officer. They guarantee safety and security within an environment that is still characterized by a great extent of inequality in rank and Corps status. Moreover, they allow a group of future officers to distinguish itself from other professional groups in civilian society.A number of hypotheses, inviting further research in the subject conclude the chapter.
