French badge ESG, military academy/staff college


Recommended Posts

Dear all,

I've been told that these badges on picture were issued for graduates from "Ecole Sup?rieure de Guerre", French military academy/staff college (located in Paris) in 1920's and/or 1930's.

Can someone confirm this? At least letters on badge match the French name of the school..

How long these badges were given to graduates, I mean with this design? This one pictured was for a graduate from 45th Promotion, years in school were 1923-1925.

Also, this one pictured in here could be available if I make a good offer for the owner... what would be the ballpark figure for it?

Thanks for your help!

Miikka

Hello again Miikka,

I will not be much more helpful for the moment...

It is a rare, interesting id'd badge, the owner could have been a general in ww2 ...

Sure that the design did not survived ww2, and the current design is different.

In my point of view, the price depends of the name of the owner ... I will try to find more informations.

Best regards .. Herve

    • I like my tea strong enough for my spoon to stand up in. My father got me into it. When my father was at RAF Dum Dum 1943-47 most of his fellow officers drank ice cold drinks to mitigate  the heat, his Sikh batman warned him against it and said that strong hot tea would cool him down, most certainly did. So years later in the UK when everybody else was drinking iced drinks on a baking day the wood family was inbibing copious quantities of hot strong brews of Assam's finest. P
    • Hi ccj, Thanks for your comments. Funny how, for me at least, coffee has become a habit more than a conscience choice. It's the old, "Well if you having one (coffee) pour me as well". When I get together with my son-in-law, a former Brit, it's tea all the way. Thanks again. Regards Brian  
    • I live and grew up in the south (USA) and the drink of choice 7 days a week was cold sweet tea. I was unaware Lipton was British because that’s what most southern use for brewing tea. When I joined the army I learned most people in the north and western parts of the USA drank unsweetened tea and that was perplexing to my young brain. Now days I can’t stand sweet iced tea but it’s still the most common drink in the south, but, you can get unsweetened ice tea in the south. Im familiar with ho
    • I drink tea every day (Chinese tea), I used to buy Sri Lankan black tea at the fair before, it was great! I have been reluctant to drink them all. . The tea I’m talking about is just brewing water, not adding other substancesI
    • Thanks for your reply Patrick, just in case some might not know what the Belgian WW1 Medal you were referencing looks like I have included one here. I understand that the small crown on the ribbon denoted the recipient was a volunteer.
