    Can anyone id this French mil badge. My dad was given it on the Charles DeGaulle carrier by his "guide" during a medal ceremony. I have looked but cannot find any info - the words read Gal Simon on the sword - dragon looks like a ref to Indochine campaign.

    Any help or direction is much appreciated.
    Cheers.
     
  2. well thanks for the overwhelming response - should have known better with foreign badges. I found out what it is using the wide world web (deep dive) but not sharing the info.

    ok - its a St Cyr year badge.
     
  3. So what is the Gal Simon bit - someone's name, or a college/intake?
     
  4. Thanks - so Gal is General i suppose?
