Front: 천리마 is Chollima it is a North Korean movement for shock economics

I guess the easiest way to translate in English would be "thousand mile horse" It is closest to Soviet Stakhanovite movement.

Reverse, first section to the left 조선직업 Joseon career or occupation, the rest I can't read on the reverse since it gets blurry when I zoom in, could you post closer shots of the reverse.

only have middle and right to translate, but I'm suspecting it is most likely for shock worker or something similar

I'll have to check out the second word tomorrow and elaborate in my brain a bit on it :D Think it over so to speak but,

Last word, 앙위원회

means, "Chiang Rai Committee" Now this needs a little explanation, Chiang Rai is a major debarcation point for North Koreans wishing to flee the North, and they commonly entry Thailand through this point.

As for the badge's meaning, as Chiang Rai is also a Military Commission of the Communist Party of North Korea, which I suspect this badge belonged to a member, it looks like a badge from there.

middle word:

촘동맹중

Alliance of Chom, so we have together,

천리마 촘동맹중 앙위원회

Chollima alliance/confederate (most likely alliance in this context) of the Chiang Rai Committee.

Hope that helped :)

Thank you. It indeed helps.
