    Hi there,welcome to the forum. It's a Lorient shield,but better pics of both sides of the badge would be needed to ascertain originality & value. Stewy S

    I'm 99% sure this is a post war repro. As the originals were hand crafted by members of the garrison from whatever they had at hand. Mainly aluminium or zinc. Stewy S

    This i think is post war,as yet there i think there is still no period photographic evidence of these ever being worn unless someone can correct me on this.Also it looks too well defind as the supposed originals were reported to have been made in the local fish cannery and not of great quality.Hope this helps........Cheers Rob

    I don't have to. I've never had any dealings with the gentleman,but he does have a dubious reputation. Stewy S

    A wartime Lorient shield. If you could find an accepted type. It would be at least four times the price you quoted. Stewy S
