    Belgian, used in the 1980s and early 1990s. This style of rank was used for both the Army and Airforce. No idea about Navy, but it's probable they did as well. These were issued in pairs and worn on the shoulders. They are also of a plastic type material, but quite different and not shiny like the old ones. For a while they were issued in pairs for shoulders, but now the use a single rank slipon for a chest epaulette. The two types are different as the first one had raised subdued rubber rank shapes on one side, the new ones have raised subdued on one side and raised ocher colored rank shapes on the other. At least that's the last type I've seen!
