    What you have there are some French rank tabs. May I suggest that you browse the net as plenty of info is available on line, The best source for insignia is here:

    http://www.uniforminsignia.org/

    My impression is that you ask your questions on here before doing the searches yourself and that you might invest a little time in learning a bit before asking us to do your research for you?

    I have done tons of research trying to identify the colors and what branch they are. Can't find a good site for this information. Like your response it was really inviting. Don't bother helping I dont need that kind of help.

    Thank you so much. Would Foreign Legion use the same as army or are they different?

    Number 8 and 9 are actually on black background. Does that make a difference

    Hello Smile
    on your photo , the Nr8 & 9 seems to be dark blue . If they are black , there is a difference . There are ranks from the "Gendarmerie Mobile"

    Thank you so much. This really helps. The French rank system is very confusing.

    Hello!

    Thank you so much for your help and explanations!
    French colour scheme and ranks are really complicated for those who have no experience with their peculiarities.

    I was trying to find something about the following two ranks, on dark blue and black base.



    I think the left one belongs to sergent (your Post n°6, 3 - Armée de l'Air - Sergent),
    and the right one - to Sergent-chef (Post n°11, La Legion - but mine tab looks similar).

    But I did not manage to fing such silver colour (and rosy-red stripes too) on the available pics...


    Could you please comment or give any piece of advice, what that could be?
