    I don't know who they are, but this looks like a challenge coin to me.

    When googeling "challenge coin", it says;
    ....blalbla..."They are also exchanged in recognition of visits to an organization"
    so that could very well make sence!
    Thanks it helped a lot!

    Well in Canada a challenge coin is different, they are numbered and registered to you! When you go into a wet mess, anyone can "Challenge" you to see the coin, if you are not carrying it, you owe EVERYONE in the mess a drink, if you have it and show it, the person that has "Challenged" you, owes you and only you a drink.
    Guess it works differently in different Counties, I still have mine!!!

    ...and I got him!
    He was Robert Hubertus, a pilot and the son of Hubertus Reginald, a senior officer who faught WWI with the Belgian trench artillery.
    And earned the medals one can see on the second picture.
    Unfortunatly Robert died in a crash in 1936 and probably got the Leopold order posthumly.
