    Hello Simon,


    The "7" likely refers to the wearer's unit : the 7th Regiment of .... infantry, cavalry, artillery, dragoons, "tirailleurs africains", etc. etc. With the Military Medal fourragère in place, the only unit I can find is the "Compagnie 15/12 du 7e régiment de génie ( 09/08/1917 ) " (source : website France-phaleristique).
