Hi, Martin

I'm going to put this one down to being a fake based on the Souval design.

firstly, the MM 'L/50' is the LDO number for the company of Godet & Co.... not a known maker of combat awards.

I have an example of a known fake in my files that matches this badge...note the missing leaf above the rifle strap.

If I were you, I would send it back.
