Similer designs throughout the Communist States.

Hungary does not have anything close to the rifle, anchor, and propeller. Lacking a sizeable water port - it was pointless. This is the badge of the MHSz "Hungarian Freedom Fighters Assosciaion" - a paramilitary organization which focused on spreading comminism and sports...

Some teenager has super-glued the cloth badge upside-down to the school bag :banger:

I took it for 2 Euro, but will have to consider carefully cutting the badge,

from the flap of the bag (which then hopefully the flap, can be repaired with a more suitable patch),

Darn youngsters and super-glue :speechless:

Kevin,

Great badge and a set of initials I have not seen before. Common ones are MHS amd MHSZ. This would appear to be another variation on the two I quoted previously because the badge itself is the same as others I have woth MHS or MHSZ on them.

Regards,

Gordon

Here is a number of stick pins issued by the Hungarian MHSZ. Each pin represents a different military skill taught by the MHSZ before people entered their obligatory military service. The pins clearly illustrate the individual skills taught.

Regards,

Gordon
