    I don't know exactly what that pin is, but the crossed pistols is often used by military police formations. Depending on size it could be for a beret or dress uniform lapel.

    My guesses are : Indonesia,Malasia Turkey or Burma?

    Looks "Midddle-Eastern/Muslim-ish" to me for some reason.

    Grabbing at straws. Anybody belong to ASMIC and can look in back issues for M.G.?

    Will be fun to see who was right/closest:)

    I had thought Indonesian as well, but I double checked and it does not appear to be that. Turkish... now there is an excellent suggestion! I'll see if I can verify or rule that one out.
