Hello, Appears to be an  French Army Staff officer armband .the three colours denotes an Army Corps staff . the baided O and R indicates more precisely the status of the wearer but iam not able to said what means. a similar armband with the letters A and L braided implied that the wearer was attached to the Heavy Artillery of the Corps . Artillerie Lourde in French .

Finally got two answers.

One to say "hello", and;

salut


je ne sais pas non plus mais j en ai un quasi identique dans la fabrication pour le trésor publique entre guerre et avant peut etre....
je pense donc que ce brassard est pour civils mais pour quel usage?
on vois pas l arrière mais je pense qu il est doublé la fabrication est soignée.

meaning:

I don't know either, but I got one almost similar , probably made for civilian use between two wars, or maybe even before then...

My guess is civilian.

I asked on a other French forum, I knew there was a guy collecting this type of armbands.

His wife replied so far, because he wasn't home. She thinks also it would be for civilian use, but waiting for confirmation by here husband.

Hello,

the guy's found a old description (no pic!) regarding a armband with OR on it but the colors do not match.

This one would be green yellow and red and was given to a winner of a fencing contest, between two wars.
