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.

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.

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.

    • I recall I did the same on hot days at Old Fort York back in 1973-74 - wool uniforms, and at 90F they would let you take your backpack off.   Michael
