ok thanks all for checking - but if possible if there is such a thing as a MG RF qualification badge that would be interesting.

Note the braid upon the man´s collar (2nd from right). That´s the so-called "Bayernborte = bavarian braid).

I also can read 1.M.G.K. on the shield and a shoulder strap seems to be a 7. So we have:

1st MG-comp. of the bavarian

a) Inf,Rgt.7

b) Res.Rgt.7

c) Ldw.Rgt.7

I agree with Andy. It is nothing official. It's not a farrier's patch (horse shoe) or a Richtkanonier patch (bursting bomb).

Moderator is looking at how to remove all these Photobucket 'entries'.  Once cleaned I will get back to re-energising MG08 & MG08/15 complimenting 'grips of death'.
