I just noticed this badge among finished auctions on ebey, is it original?
Information about the Russian Cadet Corps (Русский кадетский корпус) can be found on Russian Wiki page LINK. It was located in the Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes/Kingdom of Yugoslavia and according to Wiki it was the first foreign and the last remaining Russian cadet corps.

It looks quite nice, although I`ve never seen this variation before.

Thanks for that, Nick!

RCC was based in Serbian town of Bela Crkva. Couple of weeks ago I stumbled upon Serbian documentary about Wrangel on Youtube, that's when I heard for the first time that more than 2500 Russians lived there in the interwar period. It is estimated that around 75.000 Russians found their new home in the Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes.

There's a small museum called the Russian room in Bela Crkva today and a Russian church built in I think 1930. Some 650 Russians found their final resting place in that town, 19 generals among them.

Above-mentioned documentary "Јего благородије барон Врангел" in case someone's interested. It is in Serbian, unfortunately no subtitles but still one can see many interesting photos and films.

Are these badges so common or is it something else?
