Very nice tunic!

I think, the belt is missing, isn´t it?

The medals are: Médaille militaire and Croix de guerre with 1 star and 1 palm

The upper sleeve badge might be the "Insigne général por aéronautique/aérostation

He wers the pilot badge on his right breast.

His rank is a sergeant-major

Sorry, no name. I have been collecting 30 years and it just popped up one day. I had been searching for an officer's tunic but this is neat. It's actually very interesting and I had to research as I really hadn't been aware that enlisted mens insignia and didn't know there were orange and also red insignia and I'm still a bit confused. It is missing the belt.
