    French WW1 Clairon original?


    Recommended Posts


    I just got this french clairon maybe from WW1. Is it original?

    It has got a crest maybe for a Colonial or Muslim regiment with "1916".


    Certainly looks like it might be one of the North African units. Colonial units had the fouled anchor, now carried by the Troupes de Marine, their successors.

    Thanks Michael. Do you think it is original? Btw. it is not possible for me to get any sounds out of it... ;)

    I haven't been able to find a match for the badge, although a number of French North African units used the crescent.

    Bugle playing is an art. The sound is not cused by your breath going through the bugle, but by the vibration of your lips against the mouthpiece as you blow.
