Have had this beret badge for a long time, but have never been really certain about what it is.
Always ass ummed it was a French Naval Aviation piece...
Can anyone shed some ????

Would love to get this badge on a beret. Most likely the correct beret should be blue, but not certain.
I have had the badge for so long, I do not remember where I got it from

Well, I have the identification of this badge and by now, I understand why I couldn't find it.
It is a pure invention probably made in Marseille in the 70s/80s. A fantasy article which has few brothers.
Most of the time, Aéronavale wings or qualification badges have at least two colours, silver and bronze.
Was cruising French ebey and found this interesting posting.Shows a supposed French Naval Dirigible ( blimp ) pilot's badge.
Scroll down to see the back of the badge. It looks very similar to the back of the above posted badge.
