    Thanks Gary,

    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 confused

    Hello,

    This is not a cap badge. It is a French Air Naval qualification badge. Worn on the chest. Have you ever seen any French Air Naval personnel with a beret ? They are mainly wearing bachi navy hat or cap depending the rank. Could be old and crew menber related, I have to search.

    Hello,

    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.

    Post by ripcord on Sun May 19, 2013 12:37 pm

    Hey JYN,

    Thanks for your research and your input,

    Wow, an old novelty badge.

    It is no wonder I could not find a hint of the badge anywhere..

    Wish I could remember where I got it from....

    Scroll down to see the back of the badge. It looks very similar to the back of the above posted badge.

    Hello Gary, Hello all,


    How much can that thing weigh ???

    I think that even if it were made of gold it probably would not be much of a bargain at 230 Euros... Question Question
