French & Belgian hunting association buttons

Recommended Posts

French & Belgian hunts associations are called "vénerie" could not seem to find a proper English translation to the word.

Anyway not military related however it involves also tactics, uniforms and lots of shooting....

Her are my new arrival of "vénerie" buttons, bought during a auction in the open during a special hunting celebration in the French departement Maine et Loire.

Stuka F - lovely buttons. They would either have been for different Hunt Clubs - or, more likely are part of the

Coats of Arms of aristocratic hunters.

Venery in English is really anything to do with the hunting of deer. Good post. Mervyn

Hey Mervin,

the people in a vénerie or at least the owners of the vénerie; mostly were aristocrats, but nothing to do with their coat of arms.

The vénerie was usually related to the geographic place of the hunting grounds.

cheers

It was different in Britain - if the aristocracy weren't annoying their subjects, then they were slaughtering

anything on 4 legs - or 2 - that moved.

Here is a late 19 th century private forester's uniform (got the trousers too!) who was in service for the family Borluut-Kervijn.

Even when working in the "rallie" area he would still wore this uniform with the family crest buttons.

    • Thank you for sharing your story, it was most interesting and greatly appreciated, it makes this blog well worth the time to post. Regards Brian  
    • Hello I started collecting when I found my first Mauser cartridges in a field next to my parents' house next to Armentières. I was eight years old.  Then shrapnel, schrapnell balls, darts... That's how I became a historian. When I was 18, we used to walk through the fields with a metal detector to find our happiness. It was my time in the army as a research-writer in a research centre that made me love the orders of chivalry. I've been collecting them for 24 years now. Christophe
    • Thank you for your most interesting comment. The thrill of the chase didn't interest me in the beginning but over time it started to overshadow the act of simply adding yet another medal or group to the collection. Regards Brian  
    • I know the way I got into collecting is like so many other people; through a sibling. I also know that my love of history is barely unique in a place like this. So I know I have a shared background with many people. A less shared area - perhaps - is that I've always loved the thrill of the chase. When I decide I want, say, a 1914 trio with an original bar, to a cavalry unit, the utter thrill of getting out there and, (a) finding groups that fit the criteria and, (b) comparing them re: ranks, uni
    • I don't really drink that much these days, but there is something about a hot cup of Char that can't be beaten when you are cold wet and miserable. Has to be with milk and although I prefer it sweet with a teaspoon of sugar, these day I usually go without. When the mood takes me I will also  drink Earl Grey (with milk of course). But if I am honest my favourite brew is coffee (espresso) can't stand instant coffee, though although I do like Camp coffee which is another British thing from days gon
