Original ID tag (Identity disc) of the Volunteer soldier's 'LE CALVEZ Paul' from the military class 1911.
'EV 1911' = Volunteer class 1911. This soldier did not wait the official age to do his compulsory military service. ORIGINAL?

Some of the recipients of the "fourragère a titre personel" weared these mini fourragères.

They were tolerated, but "non-reglementaire".

 

The fourragères made from sillk, having the extra loop, were called "fourragere fantaisie".

Only Cotton ones are "reglementaire"
