I suspect Belgian due to the Lions and the Adrian hemet, but French is also a possibility...hopefully there will be other opinions, as I'm curious now too!
Is'nt that a French Croix De Guerre hanging underneath? The Belgian version is a different shape I believe. I cant see whats written on the badge, this could well be the key to identifying it. I wonder if it might say 'Verdun' in which case it is presumably a commemorative badge for the battle of 1916. This was between French and German forces.
I agree with all previous.
Lions; seem Belgian, the helmet as well. The cross looks ideed like the French CdG and also seem to read Verdun.
What I also seem to see is that the badge is put together in different parts.Makes me presume it is a home made original (post WWI) time piece.
Always looking for Belgian Congo stuff!
Thanks for pointing out the "Verdun" on the scroll...I couldn't read it at first, but see it now...So it's French! Perhaps a Sweetheart Pin or a Veteran's Brooch...
Good work, friends...
