    My grandfather told me it was something from an austrian uniform from ww1 but im not sure that is right.
    Anyway i would be very happy and thankfull if anyone could tell me what this is.

    Best regards Joakim

    Hi Joakim, not to well up on the KuK (Army of the Austro-Hungarian Empire), but I do know they wore similiar devices on their uniforms as part of shooting awards etc...have a look here to see if you can find them.. Austro-Hungarian Land Forces 1848-1918
    Prost ! Steve.

    Joakim....it certainly is ! kuk stands for "kaiserlich und königliche Armee" or in English "Imperial and Royal Army" see here.... Austro-Hungarian Army - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
