Badge - French or Belgium? Military or hunting?

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I came across with this badge below and just wondering what it is - a military or hunting related? I kind a remember that some central Europe units used bore as their symbol on their units. Also badges construction, I think, is French or Belgium style.

Thanking you in advance,

Noor

Not military to me. Judging by the construction.

But never the less a nice badge.

Definitely hunting related.

Here is my (French and Belgian, 19th century )collection hunting association buttons;

A bore's head is commonly used by those associations.

Thanks guys! Stuka f, you have a nice theme going on there. If you need another one, then It's yours. Send me pm then.

 

Yes, that's the Belgium unit that came in my mind as well but I didn't remember the name. Thanks again!
