  1. Hi All,

    A little bit of a long shot this one but I was hoping any ex FFL or FFL or French Army buffs out there might be able to id the following badge.

    Its oval in shape and lookin at it has oak leafs to the left and laurel leafs to the right. I the centre there are two crossed swords, right over left. the badge is gunmetal in colour and approx 40mm x 25mm.

    Any ideas?
  2. Here ye go...anyone?

  3. Those are Roman gladius by the looks of them.

    Did the badge belong to Tropper at one time?

    I believe it is called a "Brevet Militaire Professionale", worn by non-conscript soldiers with more than 6 months in service.
