Sweden Badges - to identify


Recommended Posts

Greetings All.

I am both a collector and a seller.  I have three Swedish badges I would like to identify.  The first is made of bronze and the other two are silver.  I would like to know what units they are for and approximately their era.  Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.  Linas

Hello!

All three badges are from the "Frivilliga skytterörelsen" or Voluntary shooting moovement. 

The first two badges are for shooting with rifle and the third is for shooting with automatic weapon. 

I can't see the year mark on the back. Is it S9 on badge number 2, if it is that would mean 1968.

So they don't have any connection to any military unit. Both civilians and military personnel could get them.

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
